Speaking to AYV over the telephone from their Kenema construction site, Yusuf Sillah said they are very disappointed with the shabby manner in which the management of the company is treating them which he stated has forced them this decision.
He explained that their salaries and allowances are very small and that unless they are increased they will have to withhold their services.

Also talking to AYV over the telephone from Lungi, Mr. Amara Dumbuya said they were suffering at the Lungi which has forced a lot of their companions to abandon the site and move to the Sweet Salone Construction Company where they are paid better salaries and have better conditions of service.
