GOVERNMENT’S DRAINAGE UNIT has been one of the casualties of the planned sweeping cuts in public sector employment.
Yesterday, workers in the unit’s Neat Programme, which cleans wells, drains and other areas to facilitate water run-off, were told they were no longer needed.
Director of the Unit Keith Barrow, seen here (at left) leaving headquarters in The Pine, declined to comment on the lay-offs, but workers, including Cherry-Ann Aymes (left), a mother of six, and Tracey Hope, a mother of three, complained of “shabby” treatment that included yesterday’s notice that it was their last day of employment.
