UNICOF threatens strike in protest of dismissed local union
The Union of Industry, Commerce and Finance
Workers, UNICOF has threatened to embark on an
industrial action in protest against dismissed
local union chair at Merchant Bank, if the Labour
Commission fails to resolve the matter.
The Local Union Chairman of UNICOF at Merchant
Bank, Rev. Jonas Koranteng-Smart was dismissed
last week for misconduct and insubordination.
General Secretary of UNICOF, Kofi Davor however
told JOYBUSIENSS though they have confidence in
the Labour Commission, they will stop at nothing
to ensure the right thing is done.
UNICOF is expected to appear before the Labour
Commission on Wednesday over notice served to
management of Merchant bank about its intention to
strike if it fails to re-instate Rev. Jonas
Koranteng-Smart as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, the unionized workers have given their
full support to UNICOF in the actions taken so far
at an emergency meeting with the National
executives held over the weekend.
