Honiara City Council (HCC) direct employees have received their salary on Tuesday following their protest over salary delay on Monday morning.
These employees comprised of those working at the Honiara Central Market (HCM), Works Division, Law Enforcement Officers (LEO) and other departments of the city council.
The peaceful protest was to demand an explanation for the HCC management to explain the delay in the disbursement of their salary into their bank account. They claimed this happened since March this year.
Early this week the direct employees ceased work and demanded an explanation from HCC Lord Mayor and City Clerk.
As a result most services provided by the Council have been affected. This included the rubbish collection.
However a statement from HCC yesterday said that most direct employees who have staged the protest on on Monday have received their salary yesterday.
“Most workers have received their salary through their bank accounts.
“At the moment most of them are back to their work ,but there are some issues within the council which are yet to be settled, but for workers who staged the protest in the delay of their salary have received their salary today (yesterday),” he said.
