POTAG: We Won�t Allow Scrapping Of Research And Book Allowance

The Polytechnic Teachers Association of Ghana (POTAG) has stated that it will resist any move by government to scrap the research and book allowance due them. According to POTAG, the book and research allowance forms part of their conditions of service insisting that the allowance should be adjusted upward to reflect the country�s current economic status. Government has given indications that it will scrap the research and book allowance and replace it with the national research fund. However, University and Polytechnic lecturers are kicking against this move citing reasons that it will hamper effective teaching and learning.
