Act fast to avoid more labour agitations – NLC to government

Ofosu Asamoah - Executive Secretary of NLC

With a series of labour agitations the National Labour Commission has been confronted with since the start of the year 2022, the NLC is calling on the government to resolve issues with the unions to avert such agitations from them.

It also appears the NLC has been overwhelmed by such agitations thereby appealing to the government to act swiftly to lessen their burden as far as such agitations are concerned.

The Executive Secretary of the  (NLC), Mr Ofosu Asamoah said “Government must also see to it that it carries out its mandate so that the commission can also take a breather.

“We are hard on the government as a commission but we are not able to come out for people to know the kind of pressure we exert on the government.”

He added, “We are up to the task, we will see to it that UTAG’s strike will be attended to before they go on strike on January 10.”

Apart from members of the Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU), Ghana Association of Certified and Registered Anesthetists and the University Teachers   Association(UTAG) are some of the labour unions with agitations which the NLC had to deal with.
