The General Secretary of Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU-Ghana), Mr. Morgan Ayawine, has urged the leadership of Ghana Hairdressers and Beauticians Association (GHABA) to align itself with an international hairdressers and beauticians institution that provides technological services in the hair and beauty industry.
According to Mr. Ayawine, global dynamics in technology call for concerted efforts to update every organisation, and GHABA is no exception.
The ICU General Secretary was addressing large number of enthusiastic members of GHABA at the launch of its 50th anniversary in Accra with the theme: ‘Accelerating the adoption of digital solutions in the hair and beauty industry, the role of Ghana’.
Mr. Ayawine disclosed that the challenges facing GHABA have no guarantee to abate and as we move forward the challenges become more obvious. He, therefore, asked the members to remain focused and resilient in order to overcome the challenges in the years ahead.
He explained that recent global development indicates that every activity in any organisation or otherwise is driven by technology, and urged GHABA to keep pace with time in order to achieve optimum objectives. ICU’s association with GHABA over the years has been fruitful and cordial, and called for it to be sustained for our mutual benefit.
The ICU General Secretary also praised GHABA executives and the trainers who defied all odds to offer skills to our young women to make them relevant and contribute their optimum quota in national development and growth of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). “On this occasion of your golden jubilee, ICU will continue in diverse ways to ensure that all members enjoy legal and social protection as enshrined in the Labour Act 651 (2003). We wish you happy 50th anniversary”, Mr. Ayawine concluded.
