SMILE FM Workers Call Off Strike Action

By Chris Nyenapee, Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU CITY, Feb 22 (LINA) - Aggrieved  workers  of  SMILE  FM, a  community  radio  station  in Zwedru  city have  agreed  to  return  to  work after two  months  of  go-slow  action.

The workers made the decision Thursday at a meeting convened by Grand Gedeh County Superintendent, Peter L. Solo, who has been concerned about the continued closure of the station.

At the meeting, Superintendent Solo announced the suspension of station manager Mike Tetteh Dorue for six months, pending the release of the report of an ongoing forensic audit into the station’s accounts.

He, however, clarified that Mr. Dorue will be paid during the period of the audit since no wrong- doing has yet been established.

It  can  be  recalled that workers  of  SMILE FM Community  Radio  Station started  a  go-slow action  two months ago, for  what they  referred to as  improprieties on the part of the  station  manager.

Among other things, the workers cited the  mismanagement  of funds, lack of  cooperation  and  delays  in  payment  of  stipends, as reasons for the strike action .

The workers were subsequently paid four months arrears, but insisted that the station manager steps down.
