NUPW waiting until Monday
THE NATIONAL UNION of Public Workers will make its next move on Monday.
That is when the union expects a response from Chief Personnel Officer Gail Atkins following Thursday’s meeting to discuss president Akanni McDowall’s employment status.
Officials from The Personnel Administration Division and Ministry of Civil Service meet with NUPW executive for roughly two hours in the E Humphrey Walcott Building, corner of Collymore Rock and Culloden Road, St Michael.
NUPW general secretary Roslyn Smith said they put their case to the Atkins and were confident the “errors” which had been made would be corrected. They have also not ruled out industrial action.
They had met with health inspectors yesterday and a protest of some sort had been planned today, but that was put on hold after today’s meeting was scheduled.
McDowall had been acting as Health Planner I, but was reverted to the more junior post of Environmental Health Assistant I at the end of October. (AD)
