Uganda is joining the rest of the world to celebrate the International Labor Day on 1st May 2018. This year’s celebration will be he held in Sembabule District.
This day is commemorated in honour of the contribution of workers to national development. It is also used to heighten both national and international consciousness on the importance of promoting and protecting the rights of workers. Furthermore, given that rights go hand in hand with responsibilities, this day has also increasingly been used as an occasion to remind workers of their responsibilities and obligations. The theme for this year’s celebrations is “Promoting the Public Spirit in the Public Sector”.
The public spirit refers to loving or caring for the nation the way an ordinary person loves or cares for their personal interests. Public spirited persons identify themselves with the interests of the nation and make those interests their own. Similarly, a public-spirited person shields the nation from anything that can harm it.
