Labour Union Marwako staff urged to form a union

A labour analyst Austin Gamey has urged workers of Marwako Fast Food Limited to form a union that will protect them and ensure their welfare in the company is enhanced.

Gamey in an interview with Accra-based Class FM said: “So far, from all that I have heard, it appears to me they don’t have a local union because this is some kind of a Lebanese company and I don’t think they have permitted people to have a union there, so the workers may not have the courage to do it.”

“The labour unions themselves are sometimes docile and not able to go and organise people in these kinds of places… I think, going forward, the workers should take an advantage of the situation now and if they can’t go to the TUC, form their own internal union as well.”

His call comes on the back of a recent abuse of a kitchen staffer Evelyn Boakye at the Abelemkpe branch of the eatery. Evelyn’s face was dipped into pepper paste by her Lebanese supervisor Jihad Chaaban.

This inhumane treatment has caused many social media users in Ghana calling for the boycott of the eatery. This has led to the creation of a hashtag #boycottMarwako.

Meanwhile, management of the restaurant has suspended the supervisor until police conclude investigations into the matter.

Jihad Chaaban has also apologised for his action.

But Gamey said the formation of a union would give voice to the workers and prevent future abuses.
