BOPOLU CITY, April 8 (LINA) - The Ministry of Labor has embarked on a nation-wide rotation of its commissioners serving in the various counties.
Assistant Labor Minister for Regional Affairs, Prince Koffa, said the rotational process was intended to decentralize the work of the outstation department.
Speaking recently in Bopolu City during the turning over ceremony of the county’s Labor Commissioner post from Mr. Jackson P. Quoigbian to Mr. James Too, he disclosed that since the exercise started, four commissioners have been rotated from one county to the other.
He named Bong, Grand Bassa, River Cess and Gbarpolu counties as areas that have been affected by the exercise.
According to Assistant Minister Koffa, the Grand Bassa County Commissioner was transferred to River Cess County, the Bong County Commissioner re-assigned to Gbarpolu County, River Cess Commissioner sent to Grand Bassa and the Gbarpolu County Commissioner re-deployed at the ministry’s central office.
Minister Koffa urged the incoming Gbarpolu County Labor Commissioner Too to promote management-workers relations to sustain peace and understanding in the country's labor sector.
The outgoing and incoming commissioners thanked authorities of the Labor Ministry for providing them the opportunity to serve their country.
In remarks, Gbarpolu County Superintendent Allen Gbowee encouraged incoming Commissioner Too to visit and monitor all concessions operating in the county, alleging that some of these concessions were violating the Labor Laws of Liberia.
