A security guard working under one of Honiara’s security services on behalf of his colleagues is strongly calling on their contractor to address their delayed payments.
Mr Martin Maury from Malaita province said that he and 49 others had signed their contracts in December 2017 and began working at NRH, MHMS Headquarter, Medical Lab, Medical Store, RWSSI and RWSS2.
He explained that their contracts stated that they would be paid fortnightly but they found out that this was not the case when they received their salaries for months, December and January in February.
Maury explained that they are experiencing this situation again because they have not been paid since February and it has really affected them.
He voiced that their contractor, Mr Francis Idu, does not care about them and brands his actions as “unfair management”.
On top of that, Maury said that they are well aware that the 2018 budget was already passed thus believes that it shouldn’t be difficult for Idu to sort out their payments.
Maury reiterates his call for Mr Idu to quickly address their issue.
Attempts to reach Idu for comments this week were futile.
