The Ghana Association of University Administrators (GAUA) has said that it is pushing for an out of court settle on their issue with the National Labour Commission (NLC).
GAUA withdrew its services over the placement of its members onto the Single Spine Salary Structure, an act the NLC deemed illegal and proceeded by taking GAUA to court.
But the association called off its nine-week old strike as a mark of respect to the late President John Evans Atta Mills who died on July 24.
The association has, however, expressed the hope that all the parties involved will go back to the negotiation table devoid of any court issue.
The President of the KNUST branch of GAUA, Solomon Panford explained to Citi News
, “we were at a point where we were just about to enter the mediation stages with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, so we selected mediators from a list that was forwarded to us by the Labour Commission.
“So we were waiting for an invitation from a mediating panel but then they took us to court.”
He therefore stated that “our lawyers are in talks with the Labour Commission so that we will settle it out of court for us to continue with the negotiation process.”
