TOR mgt applaud workers for turnaround

Atuabo Gas processing plantManagement of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) have applauded workers of the company for their role in the turnaround of the refinery.


Failure of government to inject capital in the refinery in 2009 rendered it ineffective, but in 2016 TOR is counting a profit of $800,000.

Chief Executive Officer of TOR Kwame Awuah-Darko, speaking to Class News, said his employees had proven that money was not the only incentive for workers to give off their best.

“We haven’t made any major investment; we haven’t had any expatriate injection or foreign expertise or technical advice or anything like that. Everything that took place was a result of joint staff management discussion on the way forward for the refinery,” he stated.

“A diagnosis of our problems and how to find our own solution moving forward…is what has solved our problem, with everybody coming together with a single purpose of mind and the commitment to resolve the problems of the refinery ourselves.

“When Ghanaian workers go from demanding salary increases to saying that they are rather ready to forgo their salaries, then you don’t have workers, you have an army. And that is the kind of commitment that the TOR workers showed to the company in October and November last year where they gave up one month of their salaries in order for the company to be able to navigate itself through a very difficult period.

“That was the period we didn’t even have money to pay for electricity bills, and ECG under the new regime was turning off our power. That single gesture is conviction to me that remuneration is not the only issue but having the focus to succeed.”
