The workers who are part of the local union of the general transport and petroleum and chemical workers union (GTPCWU) called on management of Ghana Gas to provide with favorable conditions because of the risk involved in their job.

However, head of communications at Ghana Gas Alfred Obgamey said the reaction of the workers were inappropriate since their concerns had already been addressed.

The pretest resulted in series of meetings between the Ministry of Employment and Ghana Gas Company over the fate of workers.

Pulse.com.gh has gathered the appointment of 13 workers have been terminated while 32 others have been suspended for taking part in the protest.

The General Secretary of GPTCWU has expressed shock over the matter.

Fuseini said the union has petitioned the board of Ghana Gas over the dismissal of the workers and suspension of the workers.
