Some workers of the Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company (GCMC) aggrieved by the suspension of their CEO Frances Essiam and its attendant skirmishes have embarked on a demonstration to secure their jobs in the midst of the ongoing brouhaha.
Some unconfirmed reports suggest that the demonstration is a protest to the decision of the board to suspend the CEO and that the workers are demanding the reinstatement of their CEO, without which they will not work.
But the inscriptions on the placards of demonstrators do not suggest the demonstration has anything to do with protests against the board or demands to reinstate the CEO. The explicit concerns as captured in the placards were more about fear of losing their jobs.
The board of the Ghana Cylinders Manufacturing Company after a crunch meeting Tuesday, May 8, passed a unanimous resolution to suspend Madam Frances Essiam.
In a statement, the Board said all contracts entered into by Ms Essiam have been put on hold pending investigations.
In the interim, the Board has appointed the Technical Director of the company, Mr. Ezekiel Mensah to act in the absence of Ms Essiam.
