The dispute started about 10 days ago, with workers demanding improved work and living conditions, and cancellation of a 37.5% deduction made from their salaries. Company officials said the deductions went toward health care, education and other employee benefits there. Most of the plantation’s 6,000 workers lives on the 240-square-mile site near Monrovia.
