Workers of Coca-Cola Ghana protest against removal of MD
Workers of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Ghana have embarked on a mass action against the removal of the company’s Managing Director, Seth Adu-Baah.
The workers, who have been protesting since Monday, January 20, 2020, in their red arm and headbands, have accused the company of unfair treatment against Ghanaian managers.
Seth Adu-Baah, who has worked with the company for 18 years, has served as MD of Coca Cola in Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Ghana before he was allegedly forced out of the company by the Regional Head of the company this week.
The roles he has served in, have given him wide-ranging experience in all aspects of financial management and control, and crucially, supply chain management, and involved liaising with banks, external auditors, tax authorities and consultants.
According to the workers, Felix Gomez, the Senegalese MD for West African countries instigated Mr. Adu-Baah’s removal. They have vowed to resist any new MD who may be appointed.
