    The Ghana Mineworkers Union is making a fresh case seeking an urgent bridge of the widening gap in salaries between expatriate and local workers.

    According to the union, the phenomenon is worsening the economic plight of its members.

    It is therefore impressing on management of the various mining companies, the need to address the issue before it takes a negative toll on operations of the sector.

    This came to light at the opening of the union’s two-day national executive council meeting.

    General Secretary of the Union, Prince William Ankrah told Joy Business, “one of the glaring concerns is about inequity in the paying system, compared to the global landscape. We value skills and not colour; what we see here is arguably pay for colour and not skills.”

    Recently, local workers of MODEC Ghana Limited, the company that operates and maintains the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah, went on a sit-down strike over pay disparity between them and expatriate workers.
