Labour Commission calls temporary halt to Vodafone’s redundancy plan

18 Sep 2009

Ghana’s Labour Commission, the body tasked with overseeing matters of labour regulatory affairs, has called on Vodafone Ghana to suspend its plans to cut 950 employees from its workforce. In a statement the regulator said it has asked the management of the Vodafone Group’s majority owned company ‘to stay off the redundancy action for now … to provide both parties further opportunity to go back and hear each other and reach some agreement.’ Depending on the outcome of planned talks between workers and the company, the Labour Commission intends to make a ruling on the redundancy programme early next month.
