Lofa Health Workers Agree To Resume Work

By Korboi K. Gbelewala, Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, Feb 18 (LINA) -Despite the ongoing nation-wide go-slow action staged by health workers, Lofa County health workers have agreed to temporarily resume work.

The workers made the commitment Monday during a meeting between several health workers assigned at various hospitals and clinics and Lofa County Superintendent George Dunor, Deputy Internal Affairs Minister for Administration Varney Sirleaf and Lofa County Representative Mayamu Fofana at the Kolahun Hospital.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the health workers said they would temporarily open the emergency ward, the Out-Patient Department and the Laboratories based upon a promise reached with the government officials that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf would be informed about their go-slow action.

They asked the officials to also inform the President about their demands which include salary increment and other incentives.

They maintained that the meeting could only be fruitful if their demands were addressed by the Liberian leader.

Also speaking on behalf of the workers, a health worker at the Kolahun Hospital, Alphonso Kekulah, reminded the officials that the action was a nation-wide issue, and stressed the need for government to take the global demands seriously.

He noted that if nothing is done to address their demands urgently, they would resume the strike action.

At the close of the meeting, the officials thanked the workers for agreeing to return to work, noting that their decision would help save the lives of scores of people in the county.
