April 28- General Federation of Nepalese Trade Unions (GEFONT) extends best wishes to all the workers working in both national and international workplaces for a healthy, respected and secured life on the occasion of International Commemoration Day.
Our major agenda is to strengthen the health safety and minimize the accidents to the zero level because health is one of the important labour rights.
Ignoring the guarantee of health ,rights, decent work and respected life of workers, Government and Employers are only concentrating on productivity. We appeal Government and Employers to make guarantee a healthy, respected and secured life of the workers for the high productivity.
Today, we pay our condolences to all the workers of the world who lost their lives because of industrial accidents and occupational diseases. Especially to the Nepalese workers who have lost their lives in the foreign land in difficult circumstances. Many of those have returned in the coffins, many of them are buried in the foreign land; we pay our commiseration to all of them. And to those who are injured and sick, we wish them to get well soon. To achieve our goal, firstly we have to have the safe and healthy working place. Thus, we wish all the best for our work to achieve our goal with unity and commitment.
