Aggrieved mine workers in Tarkwa demonstrates over plans to sack 1,700 workers

Written by  Mar 12, 2018
Some aggrieved workers of Goldfields Ghana have embarked on a demonstration in Tarkwa to register their displeasure at the day light atrocity meted out to them by their employer. The workers speaking to Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said they were not in agreement with decision by management to make them sign redundancy letters as part of its move to make them contract workers. The Deputy Secretary of the Ghana Mine Workers Union Abdul Moomin Gbana described the demonstration as a prelude to the solidarity nationwide strike by the Ghana Mine Workers Union. Meanwhile, the Mine Workers Union have filed an appeal over High Court’s dismissal of a case they filed before the court. The Accra High Court last week dismissed an interlocutory application by the Ghana Mine Workers Union (GMWU) which sought to stop a redundancy exercise by mining giant, Goldfields Ghana Ghana. The labour union wanted the court to stop Goldfields from going ahead with the exercise until the determination of a suit it filed challenging it. But in a ruling Friday morning, the Labour Division of the court, presided over by Mrs Justice Laurenda Owusu, held that the mining company stand to suffer greater hardship if the application was granted. According to the court, the workers were not in the position to compensate Goldfields if the application was granted and they lost the substantive case. However, the court said Goldfields had the resources to compensate the workers if the application is refused and the workers won the substantive case.
