Govt will continue to improve on workers’ welfare – Uzodimma
By Valentine Amanze
The Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, has assured state workers that his administration would continue to improve on their welfare.
Uzodimma, who made the pledge on Sunday, also advocated for cordial relationship with the various labour organisations in the country.
The governor, in a statement he personally wrote to mark the 2022 Workers’ Day, stated: “I have constantly acknowledged the importance of Labour in our society and the need for a commensurate appreciation of the dedication and sacrifices of our workers.
“As a government, we have maintained a cordial relationship with the various Labour unions in the state and have continued to improve on the welfare and working conditions of Imo workers.
“With the reformed system we have implemented, Imo workers now have a defined career path that guarantees growth even as they enjoy other benefits including the new minimum wage, automated and prompt benefit payment, free transport shuttle, workplace healthcare services and others.
“I therefore join leaders of goodwill in celebrating Imo workers today, as they commemorate the International Labour Day.
“A luta continua; vitória é certa.”
