UTG staff have stood their ground by proceeding with their strike despite a court forbidding them from the act.

UTG administration announced on Wednesday a court has ordered for the staff not to go on any strike.

But the unmoved staff have vowed to proceed with their strike beginning today despite the court order.

Staff top official Yorro Njie in a memo to all staff said: “The President of The Staff Association has been served with a document at 9:30pm this night by three individuals purportedly from the Bundung High Court. The documents on the face of it appears to be a ruling of the court granted by the Bundung High Court.

“The court document will be forwarded to the Association’s lawyer for legal advise and then we will respond to it appropriately.

“As citizens of this country, we reiterate our fundamental right not to be forced to work and remind UTG Staff that it is our constitutional right to embark in an industrial action geared towards national interest.

“We therefore urge the Staff to stay home as earlier communicated until our signed resolutions are implemented or further advise from the Executive, despite the Court Injunction.

“No Staff should report to work as agreed during the Staff Congress held on September 8th, 2021.

“We are not embarking on an industrial action for monetary purposes but for institutional reforms and for national interest. The university is what we have to progress as a nation.”
