The Union President, Marlon Johnson, said: “Such key issues have been the major sources of disunity, tension, agitation and frustration at the National Broadcaster.

Mr. Johnson named low salary and incentives, and gross salary disparities, providing foreign training opportunities to a selective few, among others as the key issues.

The LBS Workers Union President made the call Monday, December 8, 2014 on the Main Compound of the State Radio in Paynesville.

Mr. Johnson said: “LBS workers were happy to receive the new Management Team, headed by Ledgerhood Rennie and pledged their support to him.”

He also said: “One positive development about Mr.
Rennie’s appointment as Head of LBS is that he is an old hand in the broadcasting business and was part of the Ambrose Nmah-led administration.”

“Mr. Rennie has, at least, a better understanding of what should be done to improve the System,” he told the gathering.

The LBS Workers Union President urged the new LBS Boss to put the interest of the workers first, if he must succeed.

Mr. Johnson then hailed the former LBS Director-General, Ambrose Nmah, for his inspirational program, “Pure Power Series.
