The management of Golden Star Resources has cautioned against actions including publications and a demonstration likely to undermine legal processes initiated by a section of Bogoso-Prestea staff.
In a statement issued Thursday, November 19, 2020, Golden Star said it has taken note of a number of newspaper articles and publications on online news portals, as well as a demonstration at the Bogoso-Prestea mines at Bogoso, now under the control of Future Global Resources (FGR).
According to the company, the actions are in respect of demands by permanent employees of Golden Star (Bogoso-Prestea) against Golden Star, the former owner of the Bogoso-Prestea mines, for the payment of severance packages.
“The reality of the situation however is that no employments have been severed, amended or modified because of the sale transaction and the mine continues to operate with existing contracts and contractual terms being honored.
“Golden Star notes that there is an ongoing legal action by a group of employees of Golden Star (Bogoso-Prestea) on this matter. Golden Star believes it is right and proper for the legal action to follow due legal process and therefore is unable to make any further comment”, the statement signed by the Group Manager for Corporate Affairs Gerard Osei Boakye said.
