Pulse.com.gh has sighted a letter written to employees of the Destination Inspection Companies notifying them that their contracts with the companies have ended.

The letters sighted by Pulse.com.gh was written on July 09, 2015 to workers of Ghana Link Network Services Ltd.

The letter signed by the human resource manager of the company said "as you may be aware our contract with the government of Ghana comes to an end on 31st August 2015. This also means that your employment with the comapany formally comes to an end at that time too."

Pulse.com.gh has learnt that, about 504 workers in the five Destination Inspection Companies will go home by the end of this month.

The company stated in the letter that the shareholders are making "frantic efforts at securing a renewal of the contract. Should that be secured there is the possibility of you being reengaged."

Government has gone ahead to solely outsource the Single Window and Risk Management System Project at the nation's ports to West Blue Ghana Limited.

This decision which is being challenged by a freight forwarder has not been successful. An injunction by the freight forwarder to prevent government from sole sourcing the contract to West Blue has been dismissed the court.

One of the affected workers told Pulse.com.gh "the social impact will be too much." He said  "I have family and other dependents."

Another said,"They had been saying it, but it really hit me when i got my letter. Reality immediately dawned on me."
