The Role of Unions in Improving Working Conditions in Ghana

The results of this study indicate that formalization policies could improve employment quality among informal sector workers. Awareness of statutory benefits (which leads to improved access) is higher among unionized workers, it is therefore important to encourage increased union presence in Ghanaian workplaces. Unions should also increase dissemination of union publications, so that workers are aware of their rights. The findings of this study indicate that there is considerable scope for increased union presence in Ghana.
