Psychiatric staff protest suspension


MEMBERS OF THE NURSING STAFF at the Psychiatric Hospital were off the job for three hours yesterday in support of a suspended colleague.

About 15 angry workers protested the indefinite suspension of Rudolph Dates, a staff nurse who was sent home on Monday with full pay by acting hospital director David Leacock.

In the suspension letter, Leacock cited a number of offences Dates had allegedly committed during a two-year period.

Union representative Caswell Franklyn of Unity Trade Union told the staff nurses and assistant nurses to return to work pending a meeting between him and the Chief Personnel Officer.
