BREAKING NEWS: IPI workers stop work, stage protest rally


Hundreds of Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) workers stopped working today, Monday, and staged a protest in front of the Horiguchi Building in Garapan where the U.S. District Court for the NMI is located as banks would not accept their paychecks because the court allegedly had frozen IPI’s payroll accounts. After the peaceful protest rally, the workers, who are of different nationalities, proceeded to the CNMI Department of Labor to air their grievances. More details to follow.
