Dr Anthony Yaw Baah has been elected by popular acclamation as the new Secretary General of the Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC).
This was at the 10th quadrennial delegates congress of the labour organisation held at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi.
He replaces Mr Kofi Asamoah, who, having served out his two four-year terms of office, became ineligible for re-election.
Dr Baah until his elevation was the Deputy Secretary General and had also previously served as head of the policy and research department of the Congress.
Other national officers elected by the delegates were Mr Joshua Ansah, Deputy Secretary General, Reverend Richard Yeboah, Chairperson, Mr Alex Nyarko Opoku, first Vice Chairperson, and Ms Philomena Aba Sampson, Second Vice Chairperson.
They will all be serving a four-year term.
Dr Baah pledged not to disappoint, saying the newly elected executives would work with much energy and passion to help improve the working conditions of the Ghanaian worker.
He called for unity in the various labour unions in order to make the TUC formidable to champion the cause of workers.
