Lowe must go!

That was the cry of angry retrenched workers from the National Conservation Commission (NCC) yesterday when they staged an impromptu protest at the Dalkeith, St Michael headquarters of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW).

Close to 70 workers turned up to attend a planning meeting with acting general secretary Roslyn Smith and senior industrial relations officer Wayne Walrond, but at the end of the hour-long meeting, the workers were all hyped up and busy making placards to march around the NUPW compound.

Rain forced the cancellation of their plans, but it did not prevent them from vocalising their feelings as many of them angrily chanted “Lowe must go!” as they held the placards aloft.

The workers said they were deeply let down by Minister of the Environment Dr Denis Lowe, who has responsibility for the commission.
