The University of Cape Coast branch of the Teachers and Educational Union (TEWU) has disclosed that even though its members are on strike, some exceptions will be given for those offering essential services to the university.

TEWU commenced on a nationwide strike on Wednesday January 13 2020 to demand better conditions of service.

According to the union, their actions follow the failure of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to finalize issues on its condition of service, while members continue to work under very difficult conditions.

Chairman of TEWU UCC, Mr. Stephen Williams in an interview with ATLFM NEWS after the declaration of the strike indicated that this decision is to ensure that some critical sections of the university are not affected by the industrial action.

He indicated that we decided that the health workers, security and electricity staff will continue to work because they are essential workers. The university community will be disadvantaged if we include them”.

Mr. Williams also called on members of the union to comply with the directive to stay away from their duty posts until their demands are met.

“This strike is for our own benefit because we do not want to be blind of our own interests. Whiles some people are enjoying benefits, we are also suffering so it is proper and prudent for all of us to fight for the purpose with which we are striking” he stressed.
