The largest public sector union says attempts to have a dialogue with the new management of the St Lucia Tourist Board regarding the future of its members have failed.

This comes ahead of the pending dismissal of over twenty SLTB employees who are members of the CSA. Union President Yvonne Edwin says the CSA is in receipt of two correspondence from the SLTB which indicate that the workers would be “terminated as soon as possible” and “by December 2016”.

Edwin says the CSA is still willing to hold talks on the issue noting that it is not too late to come to a compromise regarding the future of the workers.

Edwin stressed that it is concerning that the skills of staff at the Tourist Board may not be utilized when the new Tourism Authority is established.

Sources close to the Tourist Bioard have informed that the executive Chairperson at the SLTB is currently off island but has been in contact with the CSA. It is being reported that Mrs Agnes Francis will be happy to meet with the Union next week

Meanwhile, Edwin says the situation at the Land registry offices continues to pose lingering problems for staff. She notes that a meeting has been called today to discuss the possible options for addressing air quality issues and other problems at the department.

The outcome of the meeting is expected to be announced soon.
