The purpose of this dissertation is to investigate how the rights of workers to associate in Ghana and other ILO member countries can be effectively protected. In this era of globalization where economic pressures from western financial institutions such as the International Monetary Funds and the World Bank are forcing workers to accept the dictates of employers and the state, the ability of workers to associate and to bargain depends on their ability to strike. The paper focuses on the situation in Ghana where post-independence governments denied, and still deny, Ghanaian workers the rights to associate freely for trade union purposes. It is essentially concerned with the extent to which the relationship between international labour standards such as Conventions Nos. 87 and 98 and social justice is mediated by the nature of local politics (i.e. context). The project examines the impact of culture (political) in the regulation of labour relations in Ghana. It is a case study of the interpretation of the International Labour Organization's freedom of association conventions by the policy, politics, and history of Ghana.
