The National Labour Commission (NLC) has tasked employers and employees in the country to settle labour-related disputes.
According to the Commission, a peaceful level of industrial stability would be maintained if labour–related disputes are settled.
This was mentioned in a statement signed and issued yesterday by Mr. Ofosu Asamoah, the Executive Secretary National Labour Commission.
“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 believe 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,” the statement mentioned.
The Commission joined thousands of well-wishers both within and outside the country to congratulate workers, both in the formal and informal sectors of the economy, and to acknowledge their contributions to national development.
Employers and workers were reminded on the need to strengthen their relationship through social partnership and to improve upon their communication through social dialogues.
“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.”
