Six Hundred Workers of the Ghana Bauxite Company at Awaso in the Western North Region have been sacked.
Their dismissal follows recent rampage by workers over poor conditions of service.
This led to the burning of the Human Resource Manager’s Bungalow and three vehicles belonging to the Company.
The Mines Manager, Emmanuel Agyapong, who confirmed the dismissal in an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana said all the six hundred workers have been asked to re-apply.
In March this year, the angry workers embarked on a similar exercise to demand better working conditions. In their earlier demonstration, the workers complained that the company was not paying their Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions.
They also expressed their reservation about their unsafe working environment.
