‘Fix dumsor without further problems’ in two weeks – Union

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Tema District Council of Labour (TDCL) has given government two
reduce fuel prices and fix the current “dumsor problems without further

“World prices of crude oil have fallen drastically but government has
blatantly refused to reduce the prices of fuel under the pretext that
government is owing the Bulk Distribution Companies, thus, setting aside
the laid down automatic adjustment formula being used in adjusting fuel
prices without respecting the views of the TUC and other stakeholders”.

This was contained in a communiqué reached at the end of the TDCL’s Executive meeting held on Tuesday, March 10 2015.

The TDCL at the meeting expressed dissatisfaction and displeasure in
the way government was handling the electricity power outages and
government’s refusal to reduce fuel prices even though world prices of
crude oil “have dropped down drastically”.

“Tema, being the industrial hub of the nation is being affected
seriously by the electricity power outages as most of our factories and
manufacturing firms have been forced to produce below average and even
the acceptable production quantities thus, operating at a loss”, the
statement signed by the TDCL’s Chairman, Wilson Agana and Secretary,
Ebenezer Kodwo Taylor stated.

Some companies have shut down and hundreds of employers have been
laid-off due to the ongoing power crisis, with several other companies
threatening to lay-off some more workers.

Despite the current challenges, the TDCL expressed optimism President
John Mahama will do everything to ensure his “government fixes this
uncomfortable electricity power outages and further reduce fuel prices
to ensure industrial peace and harmony” especially in the Tema, “the
industrial hub of the nation” and most affected by the dumsor
