Tema Shipyard Workers Appeal to Government to Save GPHA

The Senior Staff Association of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), has called on the government to come to the aid of the Authority before it collapses.

The Association said some policies being implemented by the management of the GPHA, is not helping its operations and the workers are agitating to take over the running of the place.

The Association and the Junior Staff Union of the Tema Shipyard made the call at a news conference addressed by the Local Union Chairman, Mr Samuel Attram.

They appealed to the sector Minister, Mr Fiifi Kwetey to expedite action to resolve the impasse between the workers and the management, for the immediate reinstatement of the two senior staff executives whose appointments they claimed were unjustly terminated, to restore calmness at the workplace.

The two staffs were sacked for drawing the attention of the government regarding the negative turn of events in the shipyard.

He said previously the workers of the shipyard service 50 vessels yearly under the past management, but now their operation had declined to 18 vessels over the past two years.

He said the GPHA workers have the expertise in haulage and engineering and they have what it takes to manage and improve the place to chalk out financial success.
