Trade Unions



Trade Unions in Ghana are a well-organised and powerful voice for employees compared to other trade unions in West Africa. The Ghana Trades Union Congress (Ghana TUC) with its 18 affiliates is one of the "oldest" partner organisations of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung began collaboration with the Ghana TUC in the late 1960s. Traditionally, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is committed to the partnership with trade unions all around the world to promote social justice, better labour conditions, minimum wages in specific sectors and an employment-oriented growth.

With the Ghana TUC, we initiate capacity-building trainings, policy dialogues and studies on various labour issues.
