The Ghana Coca-cola bottling company has served notice its will embark on a massive lay off of workers in the coming days.
This is as a result of some challenges faced by the company, coupled with the global ravaging pandemic of covid-19.
This was announced in a statement signed by the Business Unit Managing Director WAC of the Company, Felix Gomis.
According to the statement, this declaration of redundancy has come about due to challenges faced by the company over the years “exacerbated by the COVID-19 scourge and the numerous industrial actions experienced in the last few months”.
The statement states that “In accordance with the provisions of Section 65 of the Labour Act 2003 (ACT 651), management has notified the Chief Labour Officer of the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations of the company’s intention to declare a redundancy which will affect the employment of a number of employees”.
This development will, however, be implemented after the leadership of the respective trades unions have agreed to the terms and conditions of the severance package.
Meanwhile, until the effective date of their “termination” is released, the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Ghana is asking its staff to “continue to carry out their obligations”.
