SSA workers meet with union reps


Dozens of Sanitation Service Authority workers are this morning meeting with representatives of the National Union of Public Workers at the union’s Dalkeith, St Michael headquarters.

The meeting started around 7 a.m. and is expected to last about two hours.

On Sunday, NUPW president Akanni McDowall said the major issues were a matter relating to the dismissal of an SSA supervisor, lack of appointments, and the non-signing of a collective agreement between the parties.

“Coming out of this meeting we are going to take guidance from our members. So they would have to tell us what they would want to do, or what would be the way forward for them coming out of this meeting,” McDowall said. 

“To my mind that can include anything; and when I say anything, I mean it can include industrial action as well,” the NUPW president added then. (AD)
