School Meals workers heading to court
SOME NON-APPOINTED workers of the School Meals Department are planning to take Government to court over its decision to change the qualification requirements of the Public Service.
The move was described as “illegal and unfair” by general secretary of the Unity Workers’ Union, Caswell Franklyn, who is representing some of the workers.
In the May 7 edition of the SUNDAY SUN it was revealed that more than three dozen non-appointed staff members of the School Meals Department were scared of losing their jobs because of the new requirements.
