Zoomlion Workers in Sekyere Kumawu District of the Ashanti Region have threatened to boycott work over unpaid 9 months’ salaries by Zoomlion Ghana Limited, a subsidiary of the Jospong Group.
The workers are complaining about total neglect by the company saying hunger is killing them since they have not been paid since October 2021.
Supervisor for Zoomlion Ghana Limited staff in the district Mr. Akwasi Ntow speaking in an interview with AMBASSADOR TV hosted by Osei Kwadwo emphasized majority of Zoomlion workers are struggling to survive and find it difficult to purchase common painkillers when the need arises
“Things have become very difficult for us and some of our members cannot afford square meals a day due to hardship. We have been complaining on several occasions but our leaders have failed to address our concerns” he lamented
“Our work is very tedious and risky and sometimes we need money to visit the hospital regularly but we have not been paid for 9 good months” He added.
Mr Akwasi Ntow added that “We must eat and feed our families. Some of us are widows and breastfeeding mothers but our leaders are not willing to pay us”
“Sometimes I feel so sad because we are going through serious hardship. Can you believe the majority of the workers are sick and they can’t go to the hospital because there is no money. We spoke with DCE for Sekyere Kumawu Hon Samuel Addai Agyekum and he assured us that they are working on it and very soon the money will come which we are praying so”
“Every month we are paid 180 Ghana cedis but for 9 good months we have not been paid even a pesewa but every day we come out to clean. We are calling on our leaders to pay us before hunger kills all of us”, he begged.
