GIMPA lecturers threaten strike over appointments

Senior lecturers and administration officials at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) have served notice they will lay down their tools from February 1, 2016.

Officials at the Institute say they will not teach or enter marks on the school’s score entry system if various acting top positions in the school are not filled.

Currently, the school has no Deputy Rector with several other appointees in acting positions.

In a statement sighted citifmonline.com, the President of the Senior Members Association, Stanley Coffie described the situation as totally unacceptable.

He added that “members are very unhappy about the deliberate efforts by Management, the Academic Board and Council to keep GIMPA at a competitive disadvantage.”

According to him, “no other tertiary institution in Ghana suffers from such disarray at the top level as found at GIMPA”.

The Association President, Stanley Coffie concluded by saying, faculty members had not taken the decision to withdraw their service lightly; but the situation leaves the members with no other option.
