TOR not laying off employees

TOR not laying off employees

Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) has debunked allegations that 200 of its workers have been sacked.

A statement by the Public Affairs Manager, Dr Kingsley Antwi-Boasiako, said the allegations are untrue, and that TOR is not embarking on any such retrenchment.

It said no permanent worker at TOR has been sacked, and that all TOR employees are currently at post.

The statement however said the contract duration of some casual workers who were engaged during the extensive shut down maintenance in 2017 has elapsed.

It said TOR respects the labour law as well as the right of these workers and will not in any way violate what the law requires.

The statement assured the public that TOR is a responsible company, potentially viable and has the support of government to secure parcels of crude oil for processing at the refinery’s plants.
