UNICOF To Drag Gov't To Court

UNICOF To Drag Gov't To Court
LISTEN NOV 8, 2006

The Union of Industry, Commerce and Finance Workers (UNICOF) is set to drag the Government of Ghana to the law court over the severance package of its members, who belong to the defunct Ghana Airways, if negotiations hit a snag.

UNICOF is said to be very unhappy about government's handling of the severance pay of its members, most of whom are ex-pilots of the collapsed, former national carrier.

The General Secretary of UNICOF, Mr Francis Kofi Davor says his outfit will however seek consultations with the authorities involved to see the way out of the matter.

The issue comes a day after general workers of the former national carrier filed a stay of execution at the Appeals Court, restraining the Official Liquidator from carrying out an evacuation exercise on Saturday.

Mr Francis Davor in an interview with CITI BUSINESS NEWS said his outfit has so far been disappointed in the government, the Official Liquidator, thus the Registrar General's Department, the National Labour Commission and all other parties, since they have betrayed them.

However, Mr Davor disclosed that UNICOF would give an opportunity to the government and the Liquidator to respond immediately to the issue or else, they will follow their words.
