The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Se­cu­rity Guards em­ployed with Se­cure St. Lu­cia Ltd. through­out the com­pany’s op­er­a­tional units around the is­land be­gan a “Work to rule” as from Mon­day Au­gust 10, 2015.

The “Work to rule” protest by the se­cu­rity guards is a mild at­tempt to demon­strate their dis­gust with the snail’s pace man­ner in which the Depart­ment of Labour is han­dling a $700,000 retroac­tive pay­ment in overtime due to them by Se­cure St. Lu­cia Ltd.

Some two weeks ago the Depart­ment of Labour guar­an­teed a meet­ing which would bring the Man­age­ment of Se­cure St. Lu­cia Ltd, the Min­is­ter of Labour and of­fi­cials from the Na­tional Work­ers Union (NWU) to­gether to bring clo­sure to this mat­ter. To date that has not hap­pened.

The Lead­er­ship of the NWU is stand­ing firm be­hind the ac­tion of the work­ers and hopes that this mat­ter will be re­solved ur­gently.
