There is uneasy calm at the headquarters of Ghana Commercial Bank as workers of the bank prepare to mobilize to strike against what they describe as poor working conditions.

This threat comes a few days after the Union of Industry, Commerce and Finance Workers Union apologized to President Mahama, the management and the board of Ghana Commercial Bank over a similar move as well as calls for the dismissal of the MD of the bank.

But Citi Business News has gathered the bank’s workers union has dissociated itself from the apology and rather insisting the Managing Director, Simon Dornu be dismissed to save the bank from total collapse.

This is not the first time the bank is being hit with agitations from its workers over poor management of the bank as well as poor conditions of service.

According to some of the workers who spoke on condition of anonymity, the bank is losing a colossal amount of money by way of paying 12.5% of employer contribution to the Provident Fund in favour of management staff who are on contract.

On the GCB second Tier Pension Scheme, the agitating workers staff took a swipe at management for unilaterally appointing Stallion Trust as the corporate trustee to manage the second Tier Pension Scheme without recourse to relevant provisions in the National Pension Act 2008(Act766).
