Court orders UTAG to call off strike

UTAG Strike Update: Accra High Court places injunction on UTAG strike…
The Court’s decision comes after the National Labour Commission (NLC) requested an interlocutory injunction to stop UTAG’s strike while discussions continue.
The order requires UTAG to suspend the strike and return to the negotiating table.
As a result, UTAG is anticipated to call a halt to the strike until the Court rules on the NLC’s substantive application.
The court presided over by Mr. Justice Frank Abodwe granted the injunction based on Article 296 of 1992, saying negotiations cannot go well if the respondent (UTAG) fails to call off its strike.
It has slated February 22 to hear the substantive issue before it.Tags: Court orders UTAG to call off strike, Ghana UTAG Strike Update
