Petroleum and Chemical Worker’s union of the Ghana trades union congress (TUC), has called on the government and stakeholders to object Tullow Ghana and Kosmos Energy’s plans to layoff Ghanaian workers over challenges at the operational sector.
In a statement issued by the group said the two companies are only seeking to sack Ghanaian workers to help them meet extremely unpleasant targets.
Tullow Ghana earlier this month, announced that it is cutting down its workforce in Ghana by 25 percent over challenges with oil productions among others.
The ongoing global r-process will lead to the departure of 35 percent of Tullow Ghana’s senior leadership as well as overall 25 percent job losses for staff made up of both Ghanaians and expatriates.
The union urged the Ministry of Energy and the petroleum commission, who are regulators of oil and gas industry to keenly monitor activities of these employers threatening to lay.
