Workers at state media organization Ghanaian Times are demonstrating over what they say is managerial incompetence.
According to them, their acting managing director Carol Annang is managing the company into the wrong direction.
“We are suffering at the New Times corporation. Our conditions of service are bad. The managing director has not fulfilled her promises, everything has come to a standstill,” an angry worker told Starr News’ Emmanuel Gbikpo who is monitoring the demonstration.
She added: “We pay 117,000 to graphic to print our papers every day, that huge amount is paid to them every day just to print our papers. Things are not working for us here at Times, we have appealed to them to reduce the cost of printing at graphic but they are not listening to us. News-Times corporation is like a gold mine but they are not managing it well. They are creating the impression as though things are working well, but how can you rebrand and still go and print your paper with a competitor?”.
She further noted that workers of the company have not received salary increment for the last seven years.
