Monrovia – Concerned members of the Firestone Agricultural Workers’ Union (FAWUL) have threatened to take legal action against the leadership of the union for violating the union constitution. They claim the current leadership of FAWUL headed by Harris Kerkula is receiving backing from the Ministry of Labor and the Agricultural Agro-Processing and Industrial Workers’ Union (AAIWUL) to continue its illegal action. The leadership is giving non-existent statutory reasons claiming that the new labor law (Decent Work Act of 2015) only recognizes one union which is the AAIWUL. At the same time, Ngafua expressed dismay in the Ministry of Labor for wrongly handling the workers’ concern over the conduct of an election. Phil Tarpeh Dixon said the ministry has written the management of Firestone for the conduct of the election within the period of 90 days.
