President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has inaugurated a seven-member National Labour Commission (NLC) at the Flagstaff House.
The reconstitution of the Commission by the President is in line with section 136 (2) of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651).

“We are not in the best of times but Government will continue to support the Commission.”
