MONROVIA: The management of Bridge-Liberia is calling on the public not take serious, allegations about the institution being involved into acts that are in relations to labor improprieties.
In a statement issued in Monrovia Wednesday, Bridge-Liberia said it has come to the knowledge of the institution that there are rumors in the public linking the organization to bad labor practices and questionable merit system.
According to Bridge-Liberia, the institution has over the years been in good standing with its workforce and will never do anything to jeopardize its relationship with her employees.
All appointments are Bridge are made on merit, following a clear interview process, and based upon published job descriptions.
All staff are promoted on the basis of merit and success in prior roles, and the claim that women have been promoted for any reason other than that is malicious and untrue. There is no evidence at all to support the claims now being asserted publicly, the statement said.
Bridge-Liberia said, like other institutions across the country, the presence of Covid-19 in Liberia created an unfavorable situation at every job-site, pushing managers to take the necessary steps to contain the virus spread.
The institution stated that, as a partnered to the Government of Liberia LEAP program, it was mandatory for the organization to subscribe to the Ministry of Education decision to shut down schools and reduce its staff as a means of defeating the killer decease.
Bridge-Liberia revealed that, despite its decision to reduce her staff capacity due to the Covid-19 pandemic, employees who were asked to be home, continue to receive a monthly payment from the institution.
Meanwhile, Bridge-Liberia has also clarified that the institution believes in merit based approach and do not promote individual on the job on the basis of amity.
The institution claimed that those spreading such falsehood in the public about Bridge-Liberia being associated with bad-labor practices are two of its former employees who were sacked by the organization.
According to Bridge-Liberia, the two individuals were sacked in early this month due to a breach of contract with the institution.
At the same time, Bridge-Liberia has promised to work continuously with the Ministry of Education in its quest to transform the country’s educational environment despite the current health challenges in the country.
Bridge began in order to help solve a single, seemingly intractable problem; one-in-two children are not learning.
The organization helps children in parts of the world where there is a shortage of learning, by boosting government schools or running complementary community schools. Since 2007, we have reached one million children through hundreds of schools across Africa and India.
