Casual Worker Trend: Govt Must Intervene – NDC

0

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to ensure that the increasing trend of converting regular workers to casual workers by some companies is curtailed.

“The NDC shares the deep concern embedded in the recent call by Labour to the Government to pay a close attention to the creeping unacceptable practice of some employers deliberately keeping workers as casual employees and therefore denying them the stable mindset to operate at the workplace,” Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the NDC indicated in a statement released on 1 May 2018 to commemorate May Day.

The party further charged government to ensure that that it does not “shirk its responsibilities towards labour hence the need for a swift response to the concerns of labour”.

The NDC also commended workers and encouraged more efforts to make the country’s economy stronger.

Below is the full statement:

NDC Salutes Ghanaian Workers

As workers worldwide observe the 1st of May, as the day set aside to honour the contribution of workers to nation building; the National Democratic Congress (NDC), salutes all Ghanaian Workers and appreciate the collective and enormous contribution to helping build a Better Ghana.

In spite of the many challenges that continues to confront us as a nation; workers from all facets of the workforce remain relentless and undaunted, and we say a big Ayekoo to all workers.

The NDC shares the deep concern embedded in the recent call by Labour to the Government to pay a close attention to the creeping unacceptable practice of some employers deliberately keeping workers as casual employees and therefore denying them the stable mindset to operate at the workplace.

The NDC will never shy away from the genuine and legitimate concerns of Labour.

Government must not shirk its responsibilities towards Labour hence the need for a swift response to the concerns of Labour.

Ayekoo once again to all Ghanaian Workers on this special day, and there is no gainsaying the fact that the NDC remains stoically committed to broadening and deepening the frontiers of Labour in Ghana.

Ghana is the only country we have: and we must all put our shoulders to the wheel and strive continuously towards building a Better Ghana.

May God continue to hold us together as a Nation; and may we never dow

Johnson Asiedu Nketia
(NDC, General Secretary).
