Morgan Ayawine, the General Secretary of Industrial and Commercial Workers’ Union (ICU) – Ghana, has urged workers to put aside any negative tendencies from previous years and forge ahead with determination and in unison with employers as they play their expected roles in ensuring the long-term viability and profitability of the companies they work for.
He noted that the only way to ensure a full economic recovery is to be committed to duty.
“As workers, there is the need for you to do away with any negative tendencies of the past years and forge ahead with determination and in unison with employers as you play your expected roles towards the sustainability and profitability of the organisations you work for and, by extension, the growth of the national economy”, Morgan Ayawine stated in his New Year message.
He added that “As we take stock of our work, it is obvious that the negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic that has been devastating human lives, businesses and labour activities in recent times is not over yet, as a new variant called Omicron reputed to be of a more devastating nature than its predecessors, has reared its ugly head, thus calling for extreme caution on our part as human beings and for that matter Ghanaian workers who play key roles in attainment of the National goals”.
Morgan Ayawine as cited by 3news.com on Monday, January 03, 2022, also remarked that “Business and economic activities are still in the process of recovering from the undesirable legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic. This therefore calls for redoubling of your efforts to increase productivity as a panacea for full recovery and advancement.
“We should note that full recovery can only be achieved if we as workers, would continue to be more disciplined and committed to our duties at all times and ensure the sustainability of industrial peace and harmony at the workplace and beyond”.
He noted that the “approach would in no doubt affirm the Union’s collaboration with stakeholders to take our destiny into our own hands and help in building a prosperous nation.”
