RLG boils as management forces workers to resign

Hundreds of workers at RLG, a Ghanaian-owned technology company, are up in arms against management over a threat to dismiss them if they do not resign. Meanwhile, management has maintained a deafening silence on workers GHC500 monthly salary which has been in arrears for two years. The Agams Holding Limited, owners of RLG has been having some challenges within the past few years following some botched contracts with government. According to the workers, management a fortnight ago told them it cannot run the company again and so wrote termination letters to all workers to sign, indicating they are terminating their employee status with the company themselves. This did not go down well with them and therefore refused to sign the document, but management threatened that it would still go ahead to terminate their contracts, if they fail to sign. Some of the workers at the technical unit of the company who repair and assembly laptops, mobile phones and other gadgets told Onua News that apart from the non-payment of salaries for the past two years,  social security contributions deducted from their salaries were not paid to the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT). Onua News visited the head office of RLG situated at North Kaneshie Dans Bar for official response but the team was met with resistance. There were three workers on duty at the time of the visit and two of them gave their names as ‘Musa and Thomas’. After knowing the mission of the news team, they relayed the information to Human Resource Manager who was in her office at the time of the visit. Musa, who went to the HR Manager, came to inform the Onua News that she was busy and cannot talk at the moment. Even though the Onua News team left their details for the company to call back for a response, the news team have not been able to get any response from the company over a week now.
