The Juapong Textiles Factory in the Volta Region has sacked 1400 workers due the current power crisis facing the country.

It has been revealed that the grey baft-producing company is financially incapacitated to pay for its huge electricity bills alleged to be 20 million Ghana Cedis and workers’ salaries.

Abraham Koomson, Secretary General of the Textiles Workers Union expressed his concerns that the company is in financial difficulty due of the actions of those pirating theirs designs in the Textiles Industry.

He pointed out that tactical and strategic measures needs to be implemented if the Ministry of Trade wants to save the company.

Mr. Koomson said the union was organized and ready to support Government policies to end the worsening energy crisis and other issues hampering the operations of the company.

The Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU) has, however, demanded an immediate end to the energy crisis.

According to the General Secretary of ICU, Solomon Kotei, more than 1000 of its members have been sacked in the last five months.
