13 workers lose jobs
THIRTEEN WORKERS contracted by Simmons Electrical to complete the electrical work on the Merricks Resort Development and the Allamanda Beach Hotel are now out of work.
Managing director Allan Simmons said they were contracted by Harlequin Hotels and Resorts, but he was informed yesterday that work on the two projects had to be shut down immediately due to Government’s failure to provide concessions related to the project.
He said he understood Government had offered Harlequin concessions but to date they had not received them, so the development company had to shut the projects down until the concessions became available.
Simmons said the closure not only meant that the workers would have to be severed, but it also meant the company would lose out on several million dollars. (LK)
