San Fernando Court employees refuse to work for a fifth day

by | Aug 12, 2014

justiceEmployees of the San Fernando Magistrates’ court’s Administrative Department are expected to stay away from for another since the results of an air quality test is not known.

Last Friday a test was conducted by the Caribbean Industrial Research Institute (CARIRI) of the air quality in the courtrooms, and in the magistrates’ Chambers.

Some 18 workers who are represented by the Public Services Association refrained from working in a building which they claim is a threat to their health and safety.

Union leader Watson Duke had given the Judiciary’s management a list of demands which included that an air quality test must be done, a Fire certificate, Occupational and Health, Safety (OSH) assessment of the electrical must be obtained before the workers re-occupy the building.

For a fifth day the workers gathered at the Harris Promenade after they had signed the register and left.
