Going without a cent


Share post:

Retrenched workers from the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex are going home without a cent.

Yesterday was their final day at the Wildey, St Michael multi-sport facility for all 35 staff members and added to the pain of losing their jobs is uncertainty over when they will get severance pay.

Staffers are also yet to receive official word on termination as no letters were issued, only unemployment slips.

While chairman of the National Sports Council, MacDonald Fingall, and Minister of Culture, Sports and the Creative Economy John King could not be reached for comment, as reported yesterday, general manager Barbara Bostic, office personnel, security guards, technicians,  and general workers were affected.
