Angry attendants

CAR?park attendants in Bridgetown are hopping mad.
That’s because the sheds that accommodate them remain in a state of disrepair, three weeks after being battered by Tropical Storm Tomas.
When a Weekend NATION team visited the Wharf Road car park, attendants, who work under the umbrella of the Royal Barbados Police Force, were forced to stand out in the open and issue tickets.
“Enough is enough. Those in charge of us seem to have forgotten our plight. No one seems to have pushed the case on our behalf,” said one car park attendant.
Acting assistant general secretary of the National Union of Public Workers, Delcia Burke, said she was unhappy with the situation and had received no response from the relevant authorities.
 Burke said it was unreasonable for car park attendants to be exposed to rain and the sun. She added that Tomas only exacerbated a problem the car park attendants endured for some time as many of the sheds were too small and some had become a home for rodents. (MK)
