Lowe assures workers of humane approach
Minister of the Environment and Drainage Dr Denis Lowe says workers employed within his ministry, who might be retrenched as part of Government’s public sector lay-offs, will not be treated inhumanely under his watch.
He gave the assurance yesterday morning after the official launch of the new line of tinted concrete products by Rayside Construction, Asphalt Processors Inc. and EZ Pave at Boabab Towers, Warrens, St Michael.
Workers from the National Conservation Commission, which is within Lowe’s ministry, are the latest to voice concern that they might be on the verge of losing their jobs but were in the dark about the likely outcome.
But the minister, responding to concerns that the lay-offs process might not be transparent, said he had made it clear that any workers being retrenched were to be treated with dignity.
