The promotion of 19 fire officers has been a long time coming, according to the Chairman of the Fire Service Welfare Association.

Mr Shane Felix says the move comes after years of lobbying for the advancement of qualified servicemen and women.

He adds that the officers are pleased that the promotions process has been activated. It is in keeping with a new public service commission regulation that will guide the awarding of promotions for civil servants

Mr Felix says while fire officers are pleased with the development which was among key concern areas highlighted during the last industrial relations dispute, Mr Felix says the main contention within the staff and management at the St Lucia Fire Service is trust.

Mr Felix has cautioned that the Ministry of the Public Service and National Security must continue to ensure that they operate within the legal processes and that actions of officials are above board
