Currently some organised labour groups are on strike mainly over their salaries and conditions of service. But President Mahama promised that labour will be better of in his second term.
The President was speaking at the official launch of the NDC’s manifesto at the Coronation Park at Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region.
President Mahama’s term of office can arguably be described as one that has seen a lot of labour agitations than any other in the fourth republic. However President Mahama said he was grateful for the relationship that exists between his government and labour.
“We are grateful to organised labour for the peaceful cooperation and relationship over the years. And I promise even better years ahead as our economy grows from strength to strength.”
