Former hotel workers staged a protest outside Accra Beach Hotel, Rockley, Christ Church on Friday and continued their calls to be treated fairly and respectfully.

The group included former employees of Savannah, Hilton Barbados and Accra Beach Hotel, who sang as they held up placards.

Some gathered from as early as 9:30 a.m. and repeated calls for severance payments.

This is despite Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley giving the commitment during an address on Independence Day that Government will pay workers through the National Insurance Scheme and seek to retrieve the funds from employers.

Mottley had also appealed to the workers to turn down the protest temperature. (KG)
