MONROVIA: The Ministry of Labour has mandated the Management of Bea Mountain Mining Company in Kinjor, Grand Cape Mount County to immediately reinstate all workers with unexpired contracts and halt the termination of the services of others.

A Labour Ministry press release issued in Monrovia recently quotes Minister Cooper Kruah as further mandating the Bea Mountain Mining company to ensure that: “all workers who have unexpired contracts with the entity are reinstated to their previous positions with immediate effect; and their rights to continue employment should be respected”.
The Labour Ministry press release quotes minister Kruah as urging the company that: “any ongoing actions to terminate workers ‘contract must cease immediately and ensure that any future actions relating to employment status comply fully with Liberian Labour Laws and Regulations, including proper medical examination “.

Minister Kruah is quoted further as expecting the Bea Mountain Mining company to fully comply with these directives, expressing government’s willingness to use dialogue as the best mechanism for resolving all labor related industrial disputes in the country.

It can be recalled that the Bea Mountain Mining company in Western Liberia was recently hit by wave of industrial unrest and local citizens’ resentment against what they called’ lack of social benefits from the company’s operations.’

The Labour Ministry’s quick intervention, followed efforts by the Inter-Ministerial Committee established by President Joseph Nyuma Boakai that has so far restored relative calm to the company, which contributes substantially to jobs creation and economic stimulus of the Western Region of Liberia.
