The Trades Union Congress (TUC) of Ghana is the main umbrella organization for trade union activities in Ghana:
It is made up of eighteen affiliated national unions. These are autonomous bodies which pursue their own activities but within the frame-work of their constitutions and their areas of legally accepted jurisdiction.
The Ghana Trades Union Congress will host an International Conference on organising workers in the informal economy as a follow up to the Ahmedabad India Conference held in December, 2003. The conference which will host eighty foreign delegates and forty local participants will be held at the Miklin Hotel, Accra from 25 -29 September, 2006. The objectives of the conference include, among others, sharing experiences among informal economy organisations, developing strategies to intensify organising in the informal economy, building a network of informal economy organisations and identifying the processes of representation at the international level: the International Labour Organisation (ILO), World Trade Organisation
(WTO), and other such bodies.
