Once Again We Are On Strike Over Our Book and Research Allowance (UTAG)

On Thursday, 24 July 2014, UTAG (University Teachers Association of Ghana) called an indefinite strike over the issue of nonpayment of book and research allowances. The Ghanaian government as usual has responded with an arrogant refusal to abide by its legal contractual obligations to its employees. This blog has very few readers, but to those who do read it I have a favor to ask. Labor issues in Africa particularly those involving academic labor get very little coverage outside the continent. This is despite the fact that the largest such actions actually occur in Africa and not in the US or even Europe. So to anybody reading this that has the means and that means just about everybody with a blog, a Facebook account, or any other means of communication please spread the word. It is time that people knew.
