Concerns About SSNIT Prompt Organized Labor To Request An Urgent Meeting With Akufo-Addo.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been invited by Organized Labor to a meeting to address urgent concerns regarding the Social Security and National Insurance Trust’s (SSNIT) activities.

Organized Labor has expressed serious concerns in light of recent studies showing SSNIT’s estimated incapacity to pay pensions past 2026 and its decision to sell off shares in four hotels. The organization stresses the need for quick fixes to protect the wellbeing of employees who depend on SSNIT.

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) Secretary-General, Dr. Yaw Baah, underlined the need of tackling these issues cooperatively with all pertinent parties.

“We are raising very important issues, and we are an important stakeholder,” said Baah. “I mean; they can’t ignore our concerns.”

Reiterating the pledge to make sure SSNIT carries out its pension-paying duties upon retirement, Dr. Baah reassured workers across the country.

He emphasized how crucial it is that the president and you get together to discuss these urgent issues.

Our concerns are significant, and we are a significant stakeholder. They can’t just dismiss our worries, really. I want to reassure all of the country’s workers that SSNIT will cover their retirement benefits.

In order to address the issues facing SSNIT, Dr. Baah expressed confidence in the possibility of cooperation between the president, Organized Labor, the SSNIT board, the Ministry of Employment, which is in charge of pensions, and the National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA).

We have matters to discuss, which is the reason we wish to meet with the president. And when the president, we, Organized Labor, the board, the Ministry of Employment—which is also in charge of pensions and the NPRA—come together, I have no doubt that we will ensure that SSNIT is operating as planned,” he added.
