Workers of New Times Corporation (NTC) have suspended their industrial protest which began on Monday.

This follows an agreement reached by the workers to allow the Managing Director, Ms Carol Annang to resume work, while their concerns are addressed by the National Media Commission (NMC).

The agreement was reached as a result of discussions among the Industrial and Commercial Workers’ Union (ICU), NMC and the Police.

Briefing the workers on the outcome of the meetings today, General Secretary of the ICU, Mr Solomon Kotei, thanked the workers for heeding to the appeal to suspend their action to allow a peaceful resolution of the matter.

He said their concerns were being handled by the NMC, which has queried the Board over the matter.

He said the Board, has, in turn, queried the Managing Director to respond to the claims by the workers in their petition.

Mr Kotei gave the assurance that the Union would hold a meeting with the management of the Corporation out of which a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) would be signed to guide the arrangements for the transition between now and when the matter is finally settled.”

Commissioner of Police (COP) Dr George Akuffo Dampare, the Director-General of Operations at the Police Headquarters, who led a police delegation to meet the workers, also encouraged the staff to remain calm and allow the processes to work.

He also said although they may be aggrieved, they needed to use the right channels and procedures, and ensure that the work is not affected.

The aggrieved staff of the NTC on Monday began a protest against its management over poor working conditions and other concerns.
