Ghana: BWI union affiliate GCMQWU and employer call on ILO to declare OHS a fundamental right

The General Construction, Manufacturing and Quarries Workers’ Union of Ghana (GCMQWU) and the Zhongmei Group Engineering Company Ltd. on 12 April signed a declaration recognising the importance of occupational health and safety and calling on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to declare it as a fundamental worker’s right.
The signing of the declaration is part of BWI and the European Federation of Building and Woodworkers’ (EFBWW) global campaign to build an alliance for workers’ health and safety leading to this year’s International Workers’ Memorial Day on 28 April.
The union said that the declaration was the first to be signed by an employer since the launch of the campaign last week. #SaveLivesAtWork #IWMD21
