Management Members, Deans, Directors and Heads of Division/Units, and Union leaders of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development, (UESD) have undergone a two-day training workshop on Ghana’s Labour Law, held in its Auditorium, Multi-Purpose Building.
The workshop which was organised by its Human Resource Division was facilitated by the renowned Labour expert, Mr. Austin A. Gamey of Gamey and Gamey Group.
The training sessions aimed to sensitise the workers to the Law that governs workers of Ghana and their rights and the need to speak up when it is being misinterpreted.
They were taken through the: Overview of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651), Labour Management Cooperation, and Managing Differences and the leadership roles of unions, the leadership roles of management, and a role-play exercise.
Mr. Gamey challenged the participants to read the Labour Law thoroughly, grasp it and have a better understanding of its application to the operations of the University. He said, as a young university, it behoves management to ensure that it does not repeat mistakes as other institutions and deviate from the provisions of the Labour Law in order to prevent union agitations.
In attendance were the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eric Nyarko-Sampson, and Pro-Vice Chancellor, Prof. Edward Wiafe Debrah. The Registrar, Mrs. Mary Abena Agyepong, moderated the two-day session.
