I welcome everyone to 2021. It is no doubt that in 2020 we witnessed one of the most challenging times as the world all over had to grapple with the fight against the novel corona virus disease, covid–19 pandemic. We in the Construction and Allied Industry, were badly affected, coupled with the already existing down turn in the industry, the loss of job arising from non-funding of projects, and other economic challenges.
Comrades, friends and partners, as I use this medium to send best new year wishes and regards, I want to admonish that we must face 2021 with hope as we brace up to confront the challenges arising from the resurgence of the covid–19 Pandemic. We must continue to observe the safety protocols and guidelines in dealing with the new normal.
We as a Trade Union shall also continue to engage the employers to ensure the protection of workers’ rights and improved conditions of service. In this 2021, we must brace up as we focus on intensive organizing as well as programs and activities that will improve the lives of our members.
My Best Wishes
Comrade Isaac Egbugara - National President CCESSA.
