The Senior Staff of the University of Development (UDS) has suspended its industrial action demanding improved service conditions.

The group had earlier expressed its unhappiness with the delay in the promotion of some colleagues.

In an earlier meeting, the UDS management agreed to implement recommendations of the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) that addresses qualification requirements for progression, a reason that necessitated the industrial action.

However, in a statement issued on Thursday, May 12, the Association said, “the Executive Council of the Senior Staff Association-University for Development Studies, Tamale, wishes to suspend its earlier intention to embark on an indefinite industrial strike which was scheduled on Thursday, May 12, 2022.”

It added that it had reached some agreements with the management.

Below are the agreements
