|Summary of the proposed Action :||The need for Action
Workers and Ghanaians as a whole are not fully aware of the roles played by the TUC and its affiliates; they are not educated to understand which implications may arise from various actions; and they are also not well educated about their rights and responsibilities. This problem does not create the right industrial atmosphere that will provide the enabling environment for increased investments and thereby employment generation. Thus, TUC sees it as a social responsibility to promote industrial harmony through increased education of the entire membership.
The proposed solution to the identified need,
The implementation plan
The programmes are expected to lead to improved management of disputes at the workplace. With an improved dialogue at the base it is also expected that TUC and its affiliates will be more self-reliant in suggesting new rules, legislation etc.
