Loud message


Share post:

“Highly Qualified And Experienced Staff Wiped Out”. “Appoint To Disappoint”. “Probation Department At Its Lowest Ebb”.
These and other placards were raised high on Roebuck Street, The City, yesterday as displaced staff of the Probation Department, supported by the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), protested recent appointments.
Shouting “mock interviews” and “who’s next?” and blowing whistles, the men and women kept up their demonstration, which started at 9 a.m. for about one-and-a-half hours.
NUPW general secretary Dennis Clarke said the demonstration was to force authorities to look at the flaws they had committed in the department. (SA/CA)
