"Workers should have a voice in the management of the state-owned power company!"

The head of the Autonomous Workers Union, Haja Maminirina, demands that workers have a voice in the management of the state-owned power company, Jirama. “We are not against the change of management and restructuring to improve the management of the company. On the other hand, all the forces of the company must be consulted if we want to change the status of the Jirama. Indeed, the decisions taken by the leaders over the years have had a negative impact on the country, including the privatization of state-owned companies.”
