The year 2020 has been very different due to the devastating impacts of COVID-19 on the economy and its rippling effect on the union movement. Despite this, the TUC (Ghana) was able to undertake several activities as planned for 2020.
Remarkable, the TUC was able to organize and grant affiliation status to the Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives, Ghana (UPNMG) with about 8,000 members becoming the 22nd affiliate of the TUC (Ghana). Further, we jointly, organized Pensions Workshops in 10 regions in Ghana to engage workers on the need for decent retirement incomes and to call on government to ensure retiring workers are not worse off as a result of the transition for the PNDC Law 247 to the Three-Tier Pension Scheme (Act 766).
Through our cooperation with the TUC, we held this year’s Evaluation Workshop of TUC’s activities which included the activities above and others for the year 2020 and subsequently prepared plans for 2021. The workshop was attended by the Secretary General, the Deputy Secretary General and TUC Staff from both the National and Regional secretariats.
