The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Na­tional Work­ers Union (NWU) has writ­ten to Se­na­tor the Hon­ourable Mary Isaac, Min­is­ter of Health and Well­ness to re­quest a lump sum pay­ment for St. Jude Hos­pi­tal work­ers.

The let­ter dated Novem­ber 26, 2018 pointed out that ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween St. Jude Hos­pi­tal and the NWU have not yet be­gun and that the health work­ers are at the same stage with gov­ern­ment daily paid non-es­tab­lished work­ers em­ployed with gov­ern­ment, and that St. Jude work­ers are mak­ing tremen­dous sac­ri­fices un­der poor work­ing con­di­tions in an at­tempt to con­tinue con­tribut­ing a high qual­ity of health ser­vice at the in­sti­tu­tion.

The NWU has re­quested that a $1,000 lump sum pay­ment should also be given to the St. Jude Hos­pi­tal work­ers as a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion and in keep­ing with what gov­ern­ment will do be­fore Christ­mas for the other group of work­ers.
