Expert to employers: Be proactive in dealing with labour issues

Labour expert Yiadom Boakye Amponsah says this time-tested approach could help in reducing the increasing rate of industrial actions in Ghana

A labour consultant Yiadom Boakye Amponsah wants employers to be proactive in dealing with labour issues at the initial stages before they escalate.

Amponsah said this time-tested approach could help in reducing the increasing rate of industrial actions in Ghana.

Speaking on Townhall Talk on Asaase Radio on Friday (29 April) ahead of this year’s May Day celebration, Amponsah urged union leaders to ensure they put in place appropriate channels in dealing with labour issues at all levels.

“If there is a complaint with one employee and you don’t deal with that complaint, the possibility is that it can generate into a departmental issue, from the department it then enters the other divisions and then you have a problem at hand,” he told Asaase Radio’s Beatrice Adu.

“So, even if it is one person that has an issue, you deal with it. So, what you do is that you have industrial relations officers, HR officers who are quite knowledgeable, they put in the right structures so that every complaints will get to them.”

“…But what happens in the public service is that even when something happens, even if they give notice that we will go on strike this day, nobody does anything till two days to the time. Then you see officers running around, that is where our problem lies, if we are proactive in dealing with employee issues we will be able to subdue these employee agitation to a very large extent,” Amponsah said.
