The National Union of Public Workers is hopeful that Government will soon deliver financial relief for former LIAT workers who are yet to receive their severance pay.

President Akanni McDowall told the DAILY NATION yesterday that it had appeared as though Government intended to address the issue but he was not sure when.

“We were supposed to have a meeting with the Ministry of Tourism about three weeks ago and we were waiting for a new date, but we did not hear back from anyone as yet. The main issue we will discuss is severance or some type of severance payment. We all understand that the workers are entitled to severance, and how they are to receive that payment is the matter that needs to be discussed,” he said.

“We don’t really have any information on what the Government proposal is going to be in relation to compensation. Once we are able to meet, Government would tell us how they are going to bring some measure of relief to those workers. (SB)
