The General Transport Petroleum Chemical Workers Union (GTPCWU) is adamant about securing the reinstatement of its interdicted executives involved in the (TOR) and Torentco deal controversy.

The TOR Board of Directors interdicted two union executives for allegedly disclosing classified information during a press conference. GTPCWU Chairman Bernard Owusu denounced the board's actions, calling it a “show of power,” and vowed to resist any attempts to target workers.

“The board of directors wants to show they are the people in charge and are untouchable. They have not done anything wrong; these are innocent workers who are doing their jobs as leaders of TOR. It means if you are doing something fraudulent, nobody should talk about it.” Bernard Owusu stated

Also, the union is taking a firm stance, with Owusu stating, “The workers of the refinery will not allow this to go to sleep without using lawful means to bring members back.” He emphasized that the mother union is writing to management to revert the decision unconditionally and that they will resist any attempts by the TOR Board of Directors to vent their frustration on workers.

The interdiction stems from the executives' alleged breach of a non-disclosure agreement related to the TOR/Torentco Lease and O&M agreements, citing Article 43(4) (vii) of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between TOR and GTPCWU.
