The Tema District Council of Labour has given the government a two-week ultimatum to lift crude oil for the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) to enable it to begin full operations this year.

It said the council would advise itself on the next course of action at the end of the two-week ultimatum.

The Chairman of the Council, Mr Wilson Agana, issued the ultimatum at an emergency meeting with members of the refinery unionised staff and organised labour in Tema last Friday as a follow-up to President Mills’s visit to the refinery in the wake of workers’ agitation over the non-availability of crude oil, for which the workers had threatened to embark on an industrial action.

Mr Agana noted that the prevailing situation of no oil for TOR to refine had negative repercussions for the country because of the heavy dependence of other industries on the refinery for their raw materials.

The Chairman of the Senior Staff o the refinery’s local union, Mr Bernard Entsiwah, commended the President for the visit and impressed upon him to initiative immediate steps towards the fulfillment of the promise he made to works and the nation as a whole.

He urged the movement to pay serious attention to the operations of the refinery, since it played a very significant role in the economic growth of the country.
