The association has been asking the government to restore the conditions of service agreed upon with the government in 2012.

The 2012 conditions of service pegged the Basic plus Market Premium of a lecturer at $2,084.42.

UTAG has complained that the current arrangement has reduced its members’ basic premiums to $997.84.

Worker Unions of the C.K Tedem University of Technology and Applied Sciences, and the Simon Diedong Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies have also said they will embark on strike on August 2.

Their issues have to do with their migration onto the Controller and Accountant General Department’s payroll system, which they say will result in the loss of basic salaries and allowances.
