SSNIT to rebuild Labour College

The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) is to construct a five-storey building to replace the current dilapidated Ghana Labour College in Accra. This is part of the Trust’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities.

The Ghana Labour College is the training institution that handles all the educational objectives of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), which oversees and regulates all the labour issues of the 17 labour unions in Ghana.

A release signed by the Head of Corporate Affairs at SSNIT, Ms Eva Amegashie, said: “Members of the unions are the bedrock and contributors to the social security scheme.”

The release said the construction would bedone within a period of 30 months and the property, when completed, would be donated to the TUC, which will “take absolute responsibility for its maintenance”.
