UTAG (University Teacher's Association of Ghana) called for its members to stop teaching this morning. We recently got a substantial raise due to the previous activities of UTAG. The raise was supposed to be retroactive for up to two years. The strike is over the payment of the arrears. So this afternoon I did not teach my two classes and it is unlikely I will be teaching Monday morning. This is the first time I have been involved in a strike. I hope it is resolved by Monday afternoon.
