“Your arrears will be paid before Christmas,” Zoomlion assures workers


imageWorkers of one the largest waste management company in Ghana, Zoomlion Ghana limited, will receive their five months’ salary arrears by the end of December, regional manager has said.

Zoomlion says it regrets any inconvenience the delay in paying the salaries might have caused the workers. The delay, the company said, was due to circumstances beyond its control and gave the assurance that all arrears it owed will be paid before this year’s Christmas.

The Northern Regional Manager of Zoomlion, Emmanuel Vulsuri announced this at the company’s and Jospong Group’s annual prayer dubbed: “Excelling In Praise and Thanksgiving Service,” in Tamale.

Mr. Vulsori said the company recognizes the difficulties the workers have gone through, stressing that it was not its intention of depriving any of its workers of what is due them.
He also appealed to residents, especially in the Tamale metropolis where there are heaps of refuse, to bear with them as they take steps to get rid of the waste.

The main target of Zoomlion, Mr Vulsori said, is to ensure that every household has a dust bin to collect daily waste generated, adding that their door to door collection of waste will be enhanced soon. The company has also adopted what he called a low technology composite-based project in which waste will be turned into manure for farmers. A follow-up test was conducted and the results show that it is good for crops and so there is still room for improvement.

The Zoomlion Company Manager said the company started in a modest way with many Ghanaians doubting its sustainability. He explained to Zaa News how Zoomlion came into being as a waste management company in Africa.

Mr. Vulsuri said the Chief Executive Officer of Zoomlion Ghana Limited Mr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong got revelation through his prayers in which God told him that there was an opportunity in waste management in the country. When Mr Joseph Siaw started the company, Mr. Vulsuri said, some pessimists started laughing at him because they could not fathom how he could use bicycles to hold up against and compete with those using vehicles.

However, through prayers and perseverance, the Zoomlion CEO did not give up, hence the need to give thanks to God. The northern regional prayer leader of Zoomlion, Isaac Kojo Abigya urged workers to have faith in God as they enter into the New Year.

Meanwhile, food items and assorted drinks, worth over two thousand Ghana cedis, were donated by the company to the Tamale Children’s home at Nyohini.
