Joaquina Almeida says the UNTC-CS is against the revision of the Labour Code at this time

Praia, Sep 15 (Inforpress) – The Secretary General of the National Union of Trade Unions of Cabo Verde – Central Union  (UNTC-CS) spoke Wednesday “against” the revision of the Labour Code at this time because she considers that this change will further harm and diminish workers’ rights.

Joaquina Almeida expressed this view during the press conference on the Social Concertation Council Meeting, held last Tuesday, and stated that a study conducted before the pandemic advises against any change for the coming years.

“In relation to the revision of the Labour Code, we are “against” at a time when workers go through various deprivations and the intention of the Government and employers is to diminish workers’ rights in the name of competitiveness and external investment,” she said.

For Joaquina Almeida, the intention of the Government of Ulisses Correia e Silva contradicts the study recommendation on application of the Labour Code in Cabo Verde, commissioned by the Executive and which advises against any change.
