Union Official Appeals For Recall Of Dismissed Health Workers

By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, August 23 (LINA) -The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Liberia Credit Unions National Association (LCUNA), Saye Biyie,  has appealed to government to reinstate health workers recently dismissed by the Health Ministry.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Mr. Biyie made the appeal Thursday when he spoke at the formal launch of the awareness campaign of the Credit Unions Movement of Liberia under the theme: “Credit Union Against Ebola” held in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.

He said the reinstatement of the health workers’ officials will help government boost its fight against the Ebola virus because “they are trained and capable of contributing their quota to the ongoing Ebola fight.”

The leadership of the Health Workers Association of Liberia was dismissed in March following a nationwide strike in demand of increase in salaries and other benefits.

Three of the officials have been reinstated, while the president and vice president are yet to be recalled to duty.

Meanwhile, Biyie has disclosed that LCUNA awareness campaign is in collaboration with the World Council of Credit Unions, the Irish League of Credit Unions Foundation and the Central Bank of Liberia, Lone Star Cell Mobile Money and the Cooperative Development Agency (CDA), among others.

He said LCUNA was joining the Ebola Task Force and the Ministry of Health to intensify the fight against the virus because the outbreak is a national crisis that requires the involvement of all.

The Liberia Credit Unions National Association is the apex body of the Credit Union Movement of Liberia established in 1969 and accredited by the Marketing and Cooperative Division of the Ministry of Agriculture in 1973 as a non-governmental, non-profit organization.

The launch of the awareness was characterized by the distribution of several buckets and disinfectants to various communities in the Red-Light Paynesville area.
