Ghana: MODEC fires local workers striking over expat pay discrepancy

Japanese company, Mitsui Ocean Development and Engineering Company, has fired all of the local Ghanain workers at its Jubilee Oil Field operation. The local workers were aggrieved by the alleged difference in wages between themselves and expatriate workers, whom they claimed earned up to three times, in some cases despite having the same responsibilities.

We invited MODEC to respond to these allegations, but the company did not respond.
