This year May day celebration was held on Monday the 1st of May, 2023 at the Attafuah Senior High Technical School park Akim Oda on the theme “Protecting Incomes And Pensions In An Era Of Economic Crises; Our Responsibility”
The district marked the celebration with Health walk and various fun games.
The president of the workers union in his speech said, May Day is not just a day off from work but rather a day to recognize the invaluable contributions of workers from all walks of life, where our efforts play a crucial role in shaping our district and the economy. He said this year, as we gather under the theme, we are reminded of the challenges and triumphs that have marked our journey over the past years. The global pandemic has tested our resilience and highlighted the importance of essential workers who have shown unwavering dedication in the face of adversity.
He said workers should reflect on the significance of the Day, and remember that the fight for workers’ rights, fair wages, and safe working conditions is ongoing. It is our duty, as a society and as leaders, to advocate for the right and well-being of workers.
He thanked all workers and said their dedication and hard work are the foundation of their collective success, and we should continue to strive for more just, equitable, and prosperous future for all.
