President of the Trinidad and Tobago Fire Officers Association, Leo Ramkissoon.

As news emerged yesterday evening that the protective services would not be accepting government’s proposed 50% bonds allotment to public servants in light of back-pay monies owed, the next move by those who protect and serve the nation, remained unknown.
In an interview with News Power Now this morning, President of the Fire Officers’ Association, Leo Ramkissoon said the Finance Minister failed to answer pertinent questions and as such, yesterday’s decision came with very little hesitance.

The Fire official noted that the 2011- 2013 bargaining period for which his membership is owed, was supposed to be paid up in cash and the union stands firm where this is concerned.
