SDO Mache Njouonwet Joseph Bertrand: My first day at work

The recently appointed Senior Divisional Officer  for Wouri may begin to wonder the kind of welcome he gets on his very first day in office when over 100 workers of the Douala Urban council choose this day  to go on rampage demanding payment of social insurance. 

According to a striking worker, the newly appointed Mache Njouonwet Joseph Bertrand should not take it personal.

“We are not out to make the new senior divisional officer feel bad or unwelcomed. We have been demanding health coverage and other social rights from the council for almost one year. We filed a first strike notice on July 13, 2016, which was supposed to begin negotiations with the Delegate but he failed. A second notice was filed on the On March 13, 2017 which was kind of a reminder to the boss that we should start negotiation, but yet he did not yield in to this. That is why, after having used all means at our disposal to have a dialogue and reach an agreement, we unanimously decided to stage a strike action to express the degree to which we are serious" explains the striking worker.

According to onlookers, this first day experience is good for the community as the newly appointed SDO, who undoubtedly is still filled with energy, will quickly liaise with Fritz Ntone Ntone to solve the problems that have been plaguing the council for a long time now.
