Nike Will Reportedly Sack Unvaccinated Employees This Weekend, GlitzEmpire

Nike will reportedly begin firing unvaccinated employees this weekend.

According to a report by The Oregonian, the company will fire unvaccinated employees who have not received a medical or religious exemption on Saturday, Jan. 15. In October, the American multinational corporation had a vaccine mandate in place to immune employees against Coronavirus.

“You failed to complete the verification process and our records show that you do not have an approved (exemption),” reads an e-mail sent to a Nike employee last week. “As a result, you are not in compliance with the Policy and your employment is scheduled to be terminated on Saturday, January 15, 2022.”

The Oregonian’s report states that a group of about 120 Nike employees have been communicating their objection to the mandates online, but it’s unclear how many from that group are actually unvaccinated.

Columbia Sportswear will make a similar move beginning Feb. 1 according to the same report. Originally, Nike planned to have employees return to work on Jan. 10 on a hybrid schedule, but those plans were scrapped and a new return date has not been announced.

“We do believe over time that with innovation and a strong brand, we want to go to a hybrid model,” Nike CEO John Donahoe said during last month’s earnings call. “As you know, in the United States we have mandated vaccines and have a very high response rate to that. So we’re ready to come back in a hybrid work environment when that’s safe.”

Complex also reported that, Nike’s bold approach to vaccine mandates will likely be met with some resistance and legal pushback. However, although sweeping government mandates are being held up due to legal challenges, legal scholars seem to be aligned in the belief that private employers can adopt mandates regardless of the court ruling.

Fuel Prices Goes Up By 50p, Crosses GH¢11 Threshold Mark In Less Than 24 Hours

Fuel Prices Goes Up By 50p, Crosses GH¢11 Threshold Mark In Less Than 24 Hours, GlitzEmpire





Fuel prices continue to soar, topping GH¢11.30 per litre in the third week of March 2022 at some stations. Other Oil Marketing Companies are expected to hike their prices as a result of this.

As we reported it early on, The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers Ghana (COPEC) predicted that diesel may cross the GH¢10 per litre mark.

It added that petrol will cross GH¢9 from Wednesday, March 16, 2022.

COPEC attributed its prediction on the rising cost of crude on the international market and the cedi which is currently depreciating among major trading currencies.

In a statement, it noted that the Free On Board prices of petrol increased by 19.28% from $917.48/MT to 1094.33/MT, diesel by 34.57% from $845.50/MT to $1137.78/MT and LPG by 17.42% from $845.93/MT to $993.25/MT between the first pricing window (1st-15th March 2022) and the second window (16th -31st March 2022).

“The petroleum price indicators as published by the NPA shows that the price of Gasoil (diesel) will increase by 30.41% from GH¢8.22 per litre in this current window to Gh¢10.721 per litre beginning 16th March 2022 and ex-pump prices of Gasoline (petrol) will increase by 18.25% from GH¢8.22 per litre to GH¢727 per litre within the same period.”

COPEC has also noted that the cedi has seen a sharp depreciation against the dollar by 9.71% from GHS6.8360 to GHS7.500 to a dollar.

In addition, COPEC has said the ex-pump prices of LPG will also increase by 23% from GHS 9.8 per kg in this current window to GH¢12.04 per kg in the next window beginning March 16, 2022.

“This implies that a 14.5kg will be sold at Ghc174.58,” COPEC added.

Prices of fuel have gone up at the pumps across the country because the Price Stabilization and Energy Recovery levy, which is a key component of the fuel price build-up, has been restored by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) after it was suspended for about three months.

The levy was suspended last year as a means of reducing the burden on consumers.

Already, COPEC has called for the withdrawal of the levy and has now urged the government to adopt the dual pricing module to stabilise fuel prices and the accompanying economic difficulties.
