Some disgruntled National Water and Electricity Company (NAWEC) staffers are planning to stage a demonstration, Freedom Newspaper has been reliably informed. The aggrieved staff said their planned strike action would be motivated by MD Nani Juwara’s failure to increase their salaries. They claimed that the World Bank has allegedly recommended to their management to increase the salaries of middle- and low-income workers at NAWEC.

The disgruntled staffers haven’t scheduled any date for the strike, but they maintained that whenever they hit the streets the nation would hear them, particularly the Barrow government.

According to an email we received from the organizers of the upcoming strike, the following NAWEC outlets are taking part in the proposed protest action: T and D, Water Division, Kotu power station, and NAWEC’s main corporate office.

The disgruntled NAWEC insiders are also vowing to release disturbing documents of the institution. They have accused the management of NAWEC of ignoring their plight. They felt being sidelined and neglected by management.

NAWEC’s MD Nani Juwara could not be reached for comment at press time.
