Security has been beefed up at Kumasi Metro Mass Depot at Abrepo Junction after angry staff of Metro Mass Transit Ltd chased out Deputy Managing Director of the Company in charge of Operations and Technical, Nana Osei Bamfo Thursday morning.
The action of the staff may have been influenced by the interdiction of Junior Staff Chairman Osei John following the strike action by the staff of MMT in Kumasi.
Workers of the Metro Mass Transit Depot have declared sit down strike over 3 months unpaid salaries.
But when Nana Osei Bamfo went there on July 16, he was chased out of the premises after unsuccessful discussion with the workers.
Kumasi Metro Mass Depot Senior Staff Chairman Mr. Opoku Amankwaa in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo asked the company to withdraw the interdiction of John Osei.
According to him, though the workers are on sit down strike over unpaid salaries, they are angry because of the interdiction of the Junior Staff Chairman.
“It is so pathetic to work for 3 months without salary. Our Union executives will send a petition to Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to appeal to Otumfuo to come to our aid” Mr. Opoku Amankwaa said.
Meanwhile the leadership of Metro Mass Transit Depot is expected to have a meeting with the Ashanti Regional Minister Thursday morning to address their grievances
