Empower Trade Unions: Create Relevance and Industrial Harmony Course

Starts: 28th Jul, 2020

Location: Bus-Stop, 105 Ikorodu Rd, Fadeyi, Ikeja

Summary

The Trade Union Movement the world over has recently more than at any other time in its history come under severe stress and threats as a result of internal and external pressures that have arisen out of the changing global socio-economic relations and weakening internal capacities and capabilities to respond adequately and creatively to the challenges. Collective bargaining has come under serious survival tests undermining the capacity of the Unions as platforms for articulating, negotiating and projecting the interests and expectations of workers the world over. Terms and Conditions of employment have all worsened with dire consequences for Industrial Relations and the Socio-economic framework. The implications of this are increasingly lowering of labor standards the world over especially in under developed economies like ours. The abuse and violation of workplace and workers' rights and privileges are becoming increasingly commonplace. Intimidations, harassment, breaching of the Rule of Law, impunity and flagrant resort to unconventional means to resolve employee relations issues have all taken center stage. It is therefore imperative to state that new challenges have emerged and employers of labor both in the Public and Private sectors have adopted new strategies and tactics in conducting Human Resource management and overall Industrial Relations practice. These new practices and challenges are mostly skewed against the working people and in the long run the continued survival of organizations. Workshop Profile The aims of this workshop shall amongst others be; To equip Trade Union leadership at all levels with new leadership strategies To build increasing working-class consciousness in the leadership To inculcate in the leadership at all levels new tools and skills for engaging the social partners To expose the leadership of the union to some of the emerging challenges to trade unions globally and in Nigeria. To build in trade union leaders especially the new comers the principles of Union rights and limitations To ensure that the Union is capable of providing benefits to its membership in the future To keep the Unions strategically evolving and relevant to the Management and the workplace. Finally, to equip the leadership with necessary skills to ensure the continuous survival of the union in a constantly changing world. Workshop Content: The History and Principles of trade unionism Negotiation techniques in a changing society Workers' Rights and Employers' prerogatives in the workplace Democratic Dissent and trade Union Activism Rights abuses and violations in the workplace: Role of Union activists Leadership issues and challenges within the trade unions in Nigeria Tripartism in the context of global pressures and internal vicissitudes Survival/relevance of trade unions in Nigeria – tools for engagement Creating a symbiosis between Management objectives and Trade Union Objectives Obstacles to effective organizing in trade unions Workplace harmony and responsive trade union actions Management – Trade union partnership for organizational survival: Issues and challenges Industrial Harmony: issues and challenges The structure, Functions and Objectives of Trade Unions Target Audience Chairman, Chief Executives and Directors Trade Union Officials Industrial Relations Managers/Officers HR Managers / Personnel Officers Legal Advisers/ Officers Senior Staff of National Industrial Court (NIC) and Industrial Arbitration Panel (IAP) All union and management representatives of all labor-management consultation committees should participate in joint learning on labor management consultation Delivery Method: The program will be delivered using the following methodologies: Lectures, discussions, syndicate work, Videos, case studies and exercises Phone: Dr Chris Egbu +2348023194131

Education and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) Course

Starts: 7th Jul, 2020

Location: Bus-Stop, 105 Ikorodu Rd, Fadeyi, Ikeja

Summary

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 goals and 169 targets unanimously adopted at the United Nations General Assembly Summit in September 2015. The goals drive international development work for the next fifteen years up to 2030. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and adoption of the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs), seeks to incorporate and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental). This agenda represents a fundamental shift in development thinking by recognising the underlying and dynamic interlinkages between the three dimensions, and by driving universal and integrated development across all countries. The SDGs look to address the root causes of poverty, and how different drivers of change influence and relate to one another to achieve transformation for sustainable development Within the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), education related to two standalone goals, narrow in scope, addressing gender equality and participation in primary education. Conversely, education is a cornerstone of the post-2015 agenda, as a goal, as well as a catalyst for broader change. The new global agenda recognises critical role of education for sustainable development, and the interlinkages between education and transformative change. Course Outline Achieve universal primary education Promote gender equality and empower women Key education-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) challenges Taking forward the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) Role of the Commonwealth Secretariat in supporting the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) for Education Phone: Dr Chris Egbu +2348023194131

The Role of Empowering Women and Achieving Gender Equality To Sustainable Development

Starts: 2nd Jun, 2020

Location: Lagos

Summary

The purpose of this course is to uncover the role of empowering women and achieving gender equality in the sustainable development. The use of a women's labour force in the economic development of the country is minimal. The political sphere of the country is, by and large, reserved for men alone. The place of women in society is also relegated to contributing minimally to the social development of the country. In addition, women's rights are not properly being protected for women to participate in various the issues of their country but are subjected to abysmal violations. Moreover, women are highly affected by environmental problems, and less emphasis is given to their participation in protecting the environment. The course concludes that unless women are empowered and gender equality is achieved so that women can play their role in economic, social, political, and environmental areas, the country will not achieve sustainable development with the recognition of only men's participation in all these areas. Objectives What is women's empowerment? What is sustainable development? Why should we empower women and achieve gender equality? Role of women in Economic growth as one component of sustainable development Course Content Definition of women's empowerment Economic growth as one component of sustainable development, is unthinkable without the involvement of women Political development/good governance Human rights protection Recommendations Audience Policy actors and practitioners from international organisations and aid agencies NGO staff Government officials Private individuals Independent consultants and development practitioners Phone: Dr Chris Egbu +2348023194131

Africa 2050 Summit(Babcock University)

Starts: 27th Mar, 2019

Location: Babcock University Ijebu Remon, Ijebu Remon

Summary

AFRICA 2050 Africa 2050 is a shared passion by THE CIRCLE MEDIA PLUS and AFRICAN VOICE NEWSPAPER UK and is becoming a movement of passionate youth to see a developed Africa before the year 2050. Having organised Africa 2050 summit in UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI, KAMPALA UNIVERSITY, LEAD CITY UNIVERSITY, and UNIVERSITY of IBADAN, it has become a vision to run with extending our tentacles to other Universities across Africa to reach out to the Future leaders of this great continent to wake up and make a change. Africa has been perceived as a dark continent and dwarfed by International Media. The continent is characterised by poverty, diseases, political instability, war and corruption. This is a call to take limit off Africa and position her in a path of victory and success before the year 2050. The share vision of 2050 is for Africa to soar higher and take her rightful position ensuring all nations within the continents are developed. THEME: LEADERSHIP: THE NECCESSITY FOR NIGERIA’S AND AFRICA’S FUTURE DEVELOPMENT The prime quality of great leaders is the clear perception they hold about the future; thinking about the future most of the time. And thinking about the future requires strategic planning, which is in turn requires a visionary leadership. For the future of the Africa’s development, some kinds of strategies are imperatives, namely quality leadership, increased industrial research and development, strong democratic institution, effective legislation against political and economic corruption, both of which are impediment to sustainable development. The African continent is in need of leadership. As Marwan Bishara, a senior political analyst at Al-Jazeera writes, ‘States of the world: In search of Leadership’ (Al Jazeera September 27, 2015) There are many world rulers, but no leaders or leadership. Bishara’s perception is that these world leaders, ‘instead of leading by example among the family of Nations’, world leadership are acting like toxic in-laws. They …preach that which they don’t practice, cause tensions, and create more problems than they solve. Turning the search light on African leaders and the level of development of the continent, one cannot but appeal for a rethink by our leaders to toe the path of greatness, to imbibe the culture that power is for service and not personal accumulation of wealth, that the purpose of leadership is the seeking of the general good will of the people, to meet the needs of the people who need prosperity and dignity. SUB THEME • Service leadership, the perception lost in African leadership • Introducing Hygiene into African politics through quality leadership • Empowering the youth towards national development AFRICA 2050 SUMMIT The summit will be an intellectual gathering of concerned political leaders, industry leaders, media giants, erudite and youth from different institutions across Nigeria. The podium will be given to distinguished speakers and at the end have a think- tank section of dissecting the subject matter. This is not a political campaign forum but a soul-searching summit of building a large room of development for the upcoming generation. THE OBJECTIVES ▪ To create a pool of thought that will lure Africa to rise to her potentials. ▪ To develop the psychological well-being of our leaders and channel them towards the right path ▪ To re-orientate the mind of our leaders and the youths alike. ▪ To make every Youth know that they are agent of change. ▪ To raise leaders that will invest in the future of the upcoming generation. AFTER THE SUMMIT EACH MEMBER OF THE AUDIENCE SHOULD BE INSPIRED TO BE ABLE: • Highlight their personal responsibility towards the development of their country. • Form a network of people that can deliberate on way forward. • Identify their own action plan and investment into the future of Africa. I own action plan and investment into the future of AFRICA • To start the process of walking and working in love with the understanding of its Implicate • To list principles of good governance and the scrutinize vision align with good Governance. • To come to the full knowledge of being responsible for the development of Africa • To plan and invest in the future leaders and the generation yet un-born.

YOUTH TRANSFORM AFRICA

Starts: 28th Mar, 2020

Location: Eko Hotel And Suits, Victoria Island

Summary

Youth Transform Africa is a shared passion by THE CIRCLE MEDIA PLUS and AFRICAN VOICE NEWSPAPER UK. It is a progeny of AFRICA 2050 SUMMIT and it is to create more platforms for African Youth to gather every year and propel a change for Africa to prosper. FOCUS It appears to be bad enough to give the impression that Nigeria does not have the capacity to manage a successful economy, efficiently run by experts that are indigenes. But this is a false impression. Nigeria has and continues to possess the potential for the internationally accepted experts who could manage any economy or any economic institution successfully anywhere. The only tragedy of the country is that real experts are not allowed to occupy politically sensitive positions from which an efficient economic management can be driven. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was not a German or British , yet he ran one of the most successful government anywhere in Africa when he was Premier of old Western Region, attaining a developmental excellence which is yet to be rivaled in comparative terms of the resources available to him at the time during which those achievement were made . The likes of Obafemi Awolowo and Nelson Mandela have set the pace for African youth to wake up and transform Africa. MC EBUKA-OBI-USHENDU THE OBJECTIVES ⦁ To create a pool of thought that will lure Africa to rise to her potentials. ⦁ To develop the psychological well-being of our leaders and channel them towards the right path ⦁ To re-orientate the mind of our leaders and the youths alike. ⦁ To make every Youth know that they are agent of change. ⦁ To raise leaders that will invest in the future of the upcoming generation.

The purpose of the reforms is partly to shed the burden of pension payment liabilities, harmonize pension schemes in both sectors of the economy, ensure viable investment of pension funds and effect prompt payment of pension benefits.
