National Labour Commission (NLC) has urged employers and employees in Ghana to follow due process in settling labour-related disputes.
A statement signed by Ofosu Asamoah, Executive Secretary of the NLC, congratulating all Ghanaian workers on the occasion of the May Day celebration on Tuesday May 1, said : “On such an occasion it is important to remind both the workman (workers) and capital employers (employers) on the need to strengthen their relationship through social partnership and to improve upon their communication through social dialogues, as this is an effective means to ensure a peaceful industrial relations environment for the promotion of investments and the creation of sustainable jobs.
“As an institution, the NLC is aware of the many challenges that confront and continue to confront workers and employers in the employment relation and managing, handling and settling industrial disputes.
“However, we are of the firm belief that, if parties in the relationship commit themselves to due process in the internal management of grievances and also ensure cooperation in terms of industrial disputes, we can maintain some peaceable level of industrial stability both at the enterprise level and the country as a whole.”
