BMMC Workers Union Seriously Warn Individuals Of Pending Protest
Workers Union of Bea Mountain Mining Company (BMMC) operating in western Liberia has seriously warned individuals who are said planning to join forces with other groups to protest next week.
A statement issued early Thursday said. “Our attention has been drawn to a leaked audio and a Facebook post from Elijah Boimah, a journalist from D1 radio station, that is being circulated, implicating this union leadership in an alleged upcoming county protest.
“We want to warn proponents of such dubious and malicious audio to desist from spreading these falsehoods,” the statement said.
“We want to state categorically that we have no dealings with any protest group, whether in Cape Mount or any part of Liberia. At no time has this Union Leadership met, discussed, or promised any protest group to offer any form of support whatsoever.
“We, therefore, distance ourselves and condemn in the strongest term statements contained in that purported audio and Facebook post, which tends to undermine the gains made so far by this Local Union leadership.
we consider this leaked audio and Facebook post as blackmail targeted at this union’s leadership by selfish individuals who have no moral uprightness.
“We are committed to seeking the welfare of the workforce in keeping with the CBA, MDA, and DWA.
The statement signed by Rekiatu Konneh, Secretary-General, and approved by Samuel G Roberts Chairman said.
