THE NATIONAL UNION of Public Workers has asked the Government to do the humane thing and appoint about 50 temporary employees of the School Meals Department.

The union says Government is insisting that to be appointed, those workers must successfully face an examination and job interview, but the union says original qualification for the job, years of service and good performance should be enough to qualify them.

The union’s acting assistant general secretary Wayne Walrond made this point today when the NUPW had a meeting at its Dalkeith, St Michael complex with about 40 employees of the department.

According to Walrond, the department’s cooks, servers, van drivers and general workers have been complaining about the long time it is taking them to be appointed. (TY)
