The National Labour Commission (NLC) has welcomed the decision by the Ghana Association of University Administrators (GAUA) for an out of court settlement saying, it will do so if the proper procedures are followed.
The Commission took the administrators to court for embarking on an illegal strike which lasted for over nine weeks.
The University Administrators, after suspending their strike in honour of late President John Evans Atta Mills, is now pushing for an out of court settlement over their demands for better working conditions with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission.
Speaking to Citi News
, the Executive Secretary of the NLC, Breku Boadu advised members of GAUA to make the first move.
“We are a state institution, we are working in the interest of the state so if they want an out of court settlement, they should write to us and indicate it,” he said.
Boadu explained that GAUA members technically have not called off their industrial action “because they indicated that they have suspended the strike and there is nothing like suspension of strike so as far as we are concerned, they are likely to go back since they haven’t totally called it off so if they want to settle out of court, we are ready.”
