The University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) Basic School in Tarkwa known as UBaS, has been closed temporarily following the indefinite strike action of members of the Senior Staff Association of the Universities of Ghana.

Teachers of UBaS who form part of the senior staff association of the university have refused to teach, hence the temporal closure of the school.

Management of the school has issued a statement informing parents and guardians of the temporal closure, assuring them that school will resume as soon as the teachers resume from the strike.
