The Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC) has cancelled this year’s May Day celebrations in compliance with the restriction on movements in parts of the country.

This year’s International Workers’ Day of Solidarity (May Day) falls on Friday, May 1, 2020, but the TUC said in a statement that the ban on gatherings will not make activities scheduled for the one-day event possible.

“We urge all workers to stay at home on May Day and continue to comply with all the relevant safety protocols in the fight against Coronavirus. We hope to continue the celebration of May Day in 2021,” the TUC said in the statement.
