The Supreme Council of Workers of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), has refuted allegations of labour unrests between the leadership of workers and management of company.

Chairman of the Union, Alhaji Idris Hassan said any such information in the public that COCOBOD workers were threatening a revolt was untrue.

It would be recalled that the Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU) hinted creating unrests which could adversely affect the fortunes of cocoa production in the country.

According to the Union, the attitude and management style of the company is creating tension among employees, unions, as well as management staff, and this could soon trigger unrests.

Alhaji Hassan said workers of the company expressed surprise about the hint of unrest and sought for clarifications from the leadership of the Union.

“There is no revolt or any intended strike in the company, there is sanity and workers are going on with their normal duties without fear or victimization, there is serious harmony among workers and management of the company “he said.

He said there is no such wrangling in the company and that the issue emanated because the COCOBOD workers have plans of breaking away from the ICU and as a result, the Union brought these issues to create tension among workers.

Alhaji Hassan said the case is currently before the courts and assured all workers of the company that there is theoretical and practical labour harmony between the workers, leaders and management of COCOBOD.
