The National Labour Commission (NLC) has said that it will do all it can to see to it that the current labour agitations in the country are resolved to bring peace and progress .
According to the Labour Commission at the inauguration of the Board of the National Labour Commission at the Jubilee House, the NLC’s commitment is to bring peace to the industrial front.
“I can assure you that we are ready to work to establish industrial peace, which is imperative for socio-economic development,” a Member of the Commission, Rose Kakari Anang pledged the NLC’s said.
However the Trades Union Congress has warned that its members may join the ongoing strike declared by teacher unions over the government’s failure to pay their Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).
Deputy Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Bright Wireko Brobby told journalists that “Times are hard because of the Russia-Ukraine war and Covid-19. We all feel the heat. We perfectly understand their plight. But then we are quite handicapped because the economic crisis is beyond us. We are only asking that they bear with us as we try to meet their demands,”.
The government has however, appealed to the striking teachers and other unions who want to join the strike not to do so but rather bear with the government.
