GIMPA staff on strike over election of Deputy Rector
Senior lecturers and staff at the Ghana Institute
of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA),
are on strike.

They have resolved to stay out of the lecture
halls and other offices until a substantive Deputy
Rector is elected. A convocation to elect a Deputy
Rector today [Thursday], was called off by the
acting Registrar, Julius Atikpui, who explained in
a letter that the decision was reached in
consultation with the Ministry of Education, and
the National Council for Tertiary Education.

However, the staff believe the decision to cancel
the convocation is a deliberate one to frustrate
the process, hence the notice of a strike.

According to a mail sent to all staff members and
seen by Citi News, “the decision to strike arose
from the failure by GIMPA Management to conform to
a key element of voting to elect a Deputy Rector
today as provided within the road map of 31st
January, 2017.”

It further added that,“the behaviour by Management
is contrary to the advice of the lawyers.”


The letter also asked staff members to be bold and
resilient in the decision taken. “Please be bold
and conform to this directive. This applies to
both administrative, teaching and supporting
staff.

The strike action will remain in force until we
have a satisfactory resolution; a Deputy Rector is
elected.” Meanwhile, some students of the
institution have expressed worry about the latest
development.
