Calls for the Managing Director, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, to be fired have been rejected by the management of GIHOC distilleries.
The workers organized a demonstration on Tuesday, May 16, calling for the payment of salary arrears and accusing the MD of poor management.
The employees claim that their contributions to the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) and Provident Fund have been late for almost a year.
The workers claim that under the direction of Mr. Jumah, the company’s MD for the past six years, things have gotten worse for the GIHOC distillery.
The employees, who were wearing red armbands, voiced their frustrations to Ghanatodayonline.com and demanded that the government quickly remove Mr. Jumah from his position.
The company’s management, however, claims that the accusations are unfounded. The GIHOC’s Nana Kwesi Adubofour Sales Manager disputed allegations of poor management, noting that just 30 of the company’s 500+ employees demonstrated.
