Tema Dangote Cement workers agitate over poor working conditions
The workers singled out their Managing Director for criticism for neglecting the wellbeing of the over 700 employees.
This will be the second time employees of the company are laying down their tools for the same reason.
According to them, factory hands are paid as low as GHC160.
The workers who had laid down their tools and hit the road to voice their dissatisfaction, wielding placards with the inscription, ‘Tunde must go’, ‘We are dying in our own country’, ‘Mr President, please come to our aid’,
Thomas Ngba, Chairman of the Dangote Cement local union said they wish to caution management for the last time on the need to improve the conditions of service of workers.
“ We find it difficult paying our bills at home. Our families are complaining, and yet we spend all our hours working for this company. Why do we have to suffer like this.”
Mr. Ngba further complained about the fact that workers, in some cases have to foot costs of operations in their line of work.
“Can you believe that truck drivers who are in charge of distributing goods across the country foot their own travel expenses like food and lodging?”, he quizzed in a statement released to the media.
