Reverend Richard Yeboah, national chairman of the Health Services Workers Union (HSWU) gave the advice at the end of a two-day seminar in Tema on capacity building on labour issues.

The seminar aimed at exposing the participants, drawn from labour unions nationwide.

Mr Abu Kuntulo, General Secretary of the HSWU the Union would come out with basic health policies which would offer quality health care for the staff and clients of health institutions.

The participants later formed a committee which would travel all over the country to sensitize staff of health institutions on the need to abide by labour laws.

Topics treated at the seminar included “management of grievances and disputes”, “introduction of labour laws and trade unionism”, and the “role of young workers in trade unionism”.
