GVL To Begin Rehiring Ex-Employees
GREENVILLE, July 30 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has disclosed that Golden Veroleum-Liberia (GVL) has agreed to begin rehiring former employees laid off as a result of the May 26 violence at the company.
According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the disclosure to journalists before her departure from Greenville, Sinoe County following the hosting of the 168thIndependence Anniversary.
She informed journalists that GVL has agreed to government’s request to start rehiring 50 of its former employees.
“As I leave Greenville, they will go back to their jobs and the process of adding numbers of re-employed people will continue as we work with them to implement the security arrangement which is very important for their operation,” she added.
President Sirleaf said government had been consulting with GVL because of the May 26 incident that resulted to people not only going to prison but also the layoff of all GVL staff.
The company sought assurances of its security that will prevent a recurrence of what happened two months ago, the release said.
Government assured GVL that the Liberia National Police will speed up the plan of working with them to ensure that LNP sets up in the communities the right kind of security arrangements to protect the citizens and the company.
