The President of the St Lucia Civil Service Association has informed that it will be meeting with the Fire Service Welfare Association to discuss representation for the organization’s membership.
This comes following what Ms Mary Isaac says is a deliberate action by the fire chief and his deputy to illegally dismantle the bargaining unit for fire and emergency officers.
The officers have been agitating for action on the part of the relevant authorities in addressing management issues at the St Lucia Fire Service following recommendations made in a report compiled on the completion of a commission of inquiry into the operations at the department.
Ms Isaac describes as suspicious, what appears to be swift action taken by the Public Service Commission to discipline the former Welfare President, when its focus should be on the recommendations made in the Commission’s report
Meanwhile, the Police Welfare Association President Cameron Laure has also indicated the organization’s readiness to stand in solidarity with their colleague members on the matter.
He has also called on the TUF to step up its involvement on the matter
Mr Laure notes that the Police Welfare Association will continue to monitor the situation
