The authorities of Libya gave assurance that they are taking appropriate steps on the problems and concerns of Filipino nurses and other hospital workers in their country, specifically about their salary.

In a statement issued prior to the visit of Libyan Health Minister Ahmed Mohamed in Manila, the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli is hopeful that there will be an immediate resolution to the problems encountered by hundreds of Filipinos who are mostly working in government hospitals and some private clinics across Libya.

“We welcome the assurances given to us by the Libyan government that the concerns that our nurses and hospital workers asked us to bring to their attention are being acted upon,” Embassy Chargé d’affaires Elmer G. Cato stated.

The embassy divulged that aside from the delays in remittance of salaries and benefits, the concerns of these workers includes delays and in some cases even non-payment of salaries of more than 1,000 Filipino nurses and hospital workers in Libya.

Minister Omar told the embassy officials that he is closely coordinating with the Office of the Prime Minister and with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Labor, and the Ministry of Finance in resolving these issues.

One of which is appointing a focal person who will work closely with the Embassy in resolving monetary claims of Filipino workers.

He furthered that the Libyan government is also planning to adjust the salaries of foreign hospital workers to ensure that they will continue to get the original dollar equivalent as indicated in their employment contracts.
