'We're Not Sacking Workers'
The Communications Manager of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Robert T.T Coleman, has assured its aggrieved workers that the company has no intention of sacking them for non-payment of their allowances.
'There is no way the company will take such an initiative since we hold the workers in high esteem and recognise the role they have played over the years,' he said.
Mr Coleman assured the workers about efforts being made to pay all outstanding arrears owed them.
He said the company was in touch with some financial institutions to access some funds to pay them.
Mr Coleman also indicated that the company has absolute confidence in government and hope funds would be released soon to pay all arrears.
According him, 'Workers are not forced to report to work anytime they complained of sickness; it will be inhumane to do so.'
He stressed that the company is working closely with the NHIS to pay the premium on behalf of its wooers.
On the issue of appointment letters, he said the Youth and Employment Coordinator are expected to come out with such letters since they employ and transfer the workers them to Zoomlion to manage.
He admonished the workers to report to work since the company has always placed the interest of the country first in all its sanitation initiatives.
Mr Coleman thanked the workers for helping Zoomlion to achieve this height since its inception in 2006, and called on the general public to participate in the National Sanitation Day on November 1, 2014 to help keep the cities and communities clean.
Zoomlion Ghana Limited is a service provider in the waste management industry and currently employs over 40,000 workers who are mainly youth nationwide.
