As you all may be aware, today 28th April, is a day set aside as The World Day for Safety and Health at Work. I will therefore, say something about it in the course of this address.
The COVID-19 pandemic is having serious effects on the health and general welfare of people across the world. Besides being a health challenge of unrivalled proportions, COVID-19 is having knock-on effects of far reaching proportions on all national economies; big and small, without exception.
In view of the foregoing, I convened a Tripartite Meeting of Government, Workers (represented by the National Organization of Trade Unions, NOTU and the Central Organization of Free Trade Unions, COFTU), and Employers; (represented by the Federation of Uganda Employers, FUE). The meeting discussed and agreed on a number of issues regarding the effects of COVID-19 on Employment including job security and the possible mitigation measures.
