The new General Secretary of the Industrial and Commercial Workers’ Union (ICU), Morgan Ayawine, has urged members to go the extra mile in ensuring productivity in the year 2022, amid Covid-19.
Business and economic activities are still in the process of recovering from the ‘undesirable legacy’ of the pandemic.
“This therefore calls for redoubling of your efforts to increase productivity as a panacea for full recovery and advancement.” Said Mr. Ayawine.
Taking stock of the ICU’s performance so far, the General Secretary said it was obvious that the negative impact of the pandemic that has been devastating human lives, businesses and labour activities in recent times is not over yet, as the new omicron vibrant reputed to be of a more devastating nature than its predecessors, has reared its ugly head.
This he said called for extreme caution on the part of members and Ghanaian workers who play key roles in attainment of the national goals.
Mr. Ayawine added, “we should note that full recovery can only be achieved if we as workers, would continue to be more disciplined and committed to our duties at all times and ensure the sustainability of industrial peace and harmony at the workplace and beyond.”
