Akufo-Addo directs Labour Minister to address issues concerning sale of four SSNIT hotels

Ignatius Baffour Awuah, the Minister of Employment and Labor Relations, has been instructed by President Akufo-Addo to meet with Organized Labor to discuss concerns regarding the sale of four hotels owned by the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) to Rock City Hotel.

During a media appearance in Accra, Dr. Yaw Baah, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), affirmed the president’s action.

President Akufo-Addo has been petitioned by Organized Labour to stop the sale of the four SSNIT hotels to Rock City Hotel.

The TUC general secretary stated that the president wants to resolve the conflict in a way that is agreeable to all parties and takes into account their interests.

He said, “We wrote to the president that we needed to engage him on this [sale of the four SSNIT hotels]. He has referred it to the minister to start the engagement with us.”

“We are hoping that these engagements will help all of us to find a solution to what we think is a problem.”

“We are going to meet with the SSNIT board. Organised Labour leaders are going to meet with the SSNIT board and also with the Employment and Labour Relations Minister who is also in charge of pensions,” Baah added.
