IT’S UNFAIR DISMISSAL !

Our banner headline story of today on   ….the dismissal of 25 workers of the ….Royal Jade Chinese Restaurant at East ….Legon, cannot pass without comments.

The workers were alleged to have been ….sacked by the management of the ….restaurant on suspicion of leaking ….“negative” information to the The …Ghanaian Times leading to the shutd- ….own of the facility by the Food and ….Drugs Authority (FDA).

But the management, of the restaurant ….explained to our reporter that the ….workers were being temporarily laid ….off, pending the resolution of the matter.

The Times finds it ridiculous that the …restaurant would lay off the workers with …the excuse that it is temporary. We do not …believe the management.We are reliably …informed that the management is blaming the workers for the closure of the …restaurant.

Their action to us, is unfair, since they ….have to take full responsibility for their ….nefarious activities and not to put the ….blame on innocent workers.

As a matter of fact, the workers have no ….hand in the publication or have in no …way influenced The Ghanaian Times to … …conduct the painstaking investigation ….into the negative activities of the ….restaurant.

In fact, the management have no right to ….blame anybody for their woes, rather ….they should blame themselves for giving ….their customers a raw deal by feeding ….them with expired products.

We urge the National Labour Commission, ….the FDA, and the National Secuity to as

… a matter of urgency, institute ….an inves-

tigation into the conduct of the Royal   …Jade Restaurant.

We consider their action arbitrary and ….inhumane. Besides, they have shown ….that they do not care about the people ….and have not regretted for their negative

….practices.

We are surprised that since the news ….broke out, no single person has been ….invited for questioning. Elsewhere, those ….who are responsible for the irresponsible ….activities at the restaurant would have … ….been in jail by now.

The overwhelming evidence should have ….provided grounds for the arrest of the ….culprits by now.

Our avowed duty is to expose the wrongdoings in the society and we will not.shirk- …that responsibility. Those who.think they …can hide behind the law and make life …unbearable for the citizens must think …twice.

Our position is clear; the dismissals are ….unlawful and the workers must not be … ….blamed for the use of expired canned ….products.
