The House of Representatives has summoned the management and leadership of the Morris American Rubber Company (MARCO) to appear before its body next week Thursday.
According to a communication from Montserrado County District #1 Representative Lawrence Morris, the management of MARCO which is based in his district has refused to adhere to the May 17 and June 15, 2018 hearing in special committee room on complaints filed against them by redundant workers union.
According to Representative Morris, the committee has cited the rubber company on several occasions and has even written the management to come up with a payment plan.
He says the company has further been asked to find an amicable solution to the workers’ plight. But Mr. Morris says the management of MARCO has not shown any interest in adhering to the numerous conditions given based on consultations done.
Mr. Morris says as he speaks, one of the redundant workers has died and another female is critically ill due to frustration.
Given the unfolding situation, Mr. Morris says he would like the House of Representatives to invite the management of MARCO Rubber Company to provide explanations as to why it should not be held responsible for the bad treatment against MARCO workers union.
