With wage negotiations between Saint Lucia’s government and her civil servants at an apparent standstill and almost inevitably headed toward arbitration, rumours are swirling that public sector workers will be taking additional industrial action today and tomorrow.
As yet there has been no word from Union bosses as to what, if any, directives have been passed down to the rank and file. Island Scene 758 can only advise readers to proceed as normal while conducting business with the public service, but be prepared for any possible delays or interruptions in service. Parents of school-age children are encouraged to make contingency plans in the event that schools are closed. Island Scene 758 will be updating news about any public sector disturbance as it happens.
