The Ghana Mine Workers Union Branch Executives in Ahafo, Akyem and Accra (Newmont Junior Workers) have debunked reports making rounds in the media that they have been prevented by the Ghana Mine Workers Union (GMWU) from denouncing their membership from the Union to join another group of their choice.
According to the Executives, they are very content with the benefit they get from the Ghana Mine Workers Union, therefore have no intention to leave nor join another Union.
It would be recalled that, the Extractive Industry Workers Union (EIWUG) recently in a press conference, addressed by the Executive Director, Victor Gyapong; revealed that about 500 workers of the Ahafo and Akyem branch of the Ghana Mine Workers Union seek to denounce their membership and join the Extractive Workers Union due to the mismanagement of the current executives of the Ghana Mine Workers Union but the GMWU are not allowing them.
However, the branch executives of the Akyem, Ahafo and Accra led by the Ahafo Branch Chairman, Peter Baako Wilson in a press conference in Accra refuted are calling on all Ghanaians to treat it as ruse.
They claim they are happy with the GMWU.
The Newmont Akyem branch Chairman, Obed Osei Sarfo and the Newmont Ahafo branch secretary Abudu Moro both spoke to Peace News Pious Baidoo Banson.
They reaffirmed their commitment to the GMWU, therefore it’s never true some of their members are willing to join another group.
