Tema Shipyard

Tema Shipyard, the biggest ships and vessels repairs company in West Africa is  near collapse if adequate steps are not taken to salvage it.

The workers have blamed the condition on years of mismanagement, and more recently, delays of the Transport Ministry to secure a new investor for the company.

Speaking to the press this week, Chairman of the Senior Staff Union of PSC Tema Shipyard Limited Fuseini Shahamudeen  debunked assertions by some disgruntled workers that the shipyard has been turned into a grave yard calling for the dismissal of the MD HRT Ali Tunde.

President John Mahama during the recent State of The Nation Address mentioned that the process of finding a strategic investor for the shipyard was underway.

The workers,  last week, asked the president to back his words with action and  gave him a 14-day ultimatum to sack the MD and also dissolve the board of the company. They blamed the situation on bad policies being implemented by the MD coupled with refusal to increase workers salary for the past three years.

However, the chairman is accusing the workers of tarnishing the image of the company.

“Over 98 percent of the vessels that call in for repair are tanker vessels,” he said. “Currently, due to the economic downturn in the oil sector, most of them have rescheduled their repairs to a future date.”
