The Trades Union Congress, TUC, has begun engagement with the Political Parties on its five-point Workers Manifesto at the Hall of Trade Unions in Accra.

The National Democratic Congress, NDC, was the first political party engaged, and a copy of the Workers Manifesto was presented to its flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, by the Secretary General of TUC, Dr. Anthony Yaw Baah at the Hall of Trade Unions in Accra.

This is the first time the TUC has decided to come out with its own vision for Ghanaian workers dubbed “The Workers Manifesto”.

It covers social, economic, labour, energy and power and governance.

The Workers’ Manifesto is to shift the political discourse by moving it from personality attacks to issue-based. It also engenders opportunities for Ghanaians to live and work together in unity.

Speaking at the event, the flagbearer of the NDC, H.E. Former President John Dramani Mahama assured the TUC of working together to enhance the status of the Ghanaian worker.

He said the NDC is concerned about the rising unemployment situation in the country and fully recognizes the urgent need to create more employment opportunities whilst sustaining the already existing ones. To this effect, John Mahama said the NDC intends to introduce a 24-hour working economy when it returns back into Government after winning the upcoming 2024 elections.

He therefore expressed gratitude to the TUC for presenting the first copy of the Workers Manifesto to him and the NDC.
