Not good enough


Share post:

THE?non-payment of several temporary prison officers has been described as untenable and slammed by the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) and former permanent secretary Elsworth Young.
Young told the DAILY?NATION that Government had become so large since Independence that structures had to be modified to make them “more responsive in a modern era”.
“We still retain some of the old centralised colonial practices that were relevant and workable 40 years ago. Barbados will soon be 50 years old and many of the structures have not been modified to drag the civil service into the 21st century and that has to be done. What is happening now should not be happening to the prison officers or across the board,”?he added.
His comments came in the wake of several temporary prison workers not being paid since last November.
