A Governance Expert, Prof Emmanuel Asiamah says though it is expected that some staff of the recently merged banks will lose their jobs, the trend at which it will take is not the best.
 
Speaking on GBC’s news and current affairs programme, ‘Behind the News’, Prof. Asiamah said what should have been done was for the employers to go through the labour procedures in laying off workers, so that those affected are properly sent away with the appropriate packages.
 
He noted that until now, staff of UT and Capital Banks are still battling their employers over their packages, a situation he indicated, affects the psychological well-being of such persons.
Labour Expert Austin Gamey, said processes to secure another job by the affected staff can be very frustrating. He gave an insight into what could be the situation going forward.
 
The General Secretary of the Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU), Solomon Kotei said the assurance of job security is far-fetched from the reality, as some affected staff will eventually be laid off after the probation period.
