Unpaid IPI construction workers stage protest in CNMI

CLOSE to 40 construction workers from Turkey and Italy on Friday morning staged a protest outside the Imperial Pacific International human resources office in Sadog Tasi, demanding their salaries.

Asked for comment, IPI Chief Executive Officer Donald Browne said:

“We are sympathetic to the workers’ concerns and understand their frustration. Unfortunately, the historic pandemic has had a much more dramatic negative affect on our ability to sustain operations than anticipated. The construction workers are important to us, as are all employees. We are diligently working to secure financing to address the payment concerns of all employees. We will continue to attempt to acquire funding until such time as our casino is allowed to open and we have the ability to generate cash flow for operations and for construction labor.”

Through a translator, one of the construction workers, Hasan Gokce, told Variety that they came in peace and had no intention of making any trouble. He said they just wanted answers from IPI about their unpaid salaries.

The protesters included 28 Turkish workers and 10 Italian workers.
