The Coalition of Textile workers has expressed concern with the unbridled dumping of pirated fabrics on the Ghanaian market.

The group says the situation has rendered the local products unmarketable, thereby threatening workers’ employment.

The group, in a letter addressed to the Ministry of Trade and Industry explained that the local industry has been struggling for years now hence the need for strategic measures to revamp the sector.

Speaking exclusively to The Ghana Report, the General Secretary of the Coalition of Textile workers, John Kofi Ackon, demanded that government implements policies which will put an end to piracy and importation of cheap textiles into the country.

Mr. Ackon added the lack of such a policy is making it easy for companies to smuggle cheap textiles into the country.

“Are they waiting for the textile industry to collapse and have their workers join the unemployed Association,” he lamented.

The workers are therefore calling for an emergency meeting with the Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen on Monday August 5, to outline some of the measures the group has taken to ensure the growth of the textile industry.

The group is threatening a possible demonstration if government fails to implement the policy within a specified time frame.

“We will speak in the language the government understands,” Mr. Ackon reiterated.
