Workers of the Cocopa Rubber Plantation in Nimba County have returned to work after several days of go-slow in demand of salary and benefits.
But the management company on the plantation – Nimba Rubber Incorporated or NRI has refuted the workers’ claims.
Speaking to The NewDawn Nimba correspondent, the head for the NRI, Harrison Karnwea, said the workers are being paid on time, contrary to claim of salary delay.
Mr. Karnwea said, since NRI took over the plantation, much has been done to improve the working environment and standard of life of the employees.
He expressed disappointment that the workers have not shown appreciation for what the NRI has done so far for them.
Meanwhile, Mr. Karnwea has disclosed plans to turn the Cocopa Rubber plantation into an industry as well as construct secondary school and new camps for the workers.
Aggrieved workers of Cocopa on Monday, 5 January staged series of go-slow, demanding salary and better conditions of work.
