Laid-off workers to get money soon
Laid-off Transport Board workers who have been angrily protesting the non-payment of their severance should be getting some relief soon.
Yesterday, general manager of the Transport Board, Sandra Forde, in a statement to the media, assured about 200 former employees of the state-owned bus company that they would soon get the rest of their money.
“The management of the Transport Board is now in a position to pay the recently separated employees their outstanding severance payments,” Forde disclosed.
Last August, police had to be called in as former workers responded angrily when they discovered that their severance payment cheques represented, in some cases, less than a quarter of what was due to them. (GE)
