A shortage of manpower continues to affect services at the General Post Office and other island outposts, resulting in service cutbacks.
Employees have been raising concerns for several weeks, highlighting the substandard working conditions at both the St. Johns headquarters and various other locations.
Their determination to address these issues remains firm, as they persist in their ongoing industrial action, committed to bringing about improvements in their work environment.
Alrick Daniel, General Secretary of the Antigua Trades and Labour Union, has stated that the union is collaborating with management to explore potential retrofitting options for a suitable building to accommodate the protesting staff.
“The management is in the process of acquiring a facility where the postal service operations can continue as it stands now there are limited services offered at the different outposts by members of the management team and other supervisors.
“The workers are refusing to enter the facility; we are working along with them to try and rectify this as soon as possible. We don’t think that its in anybody’s interest that the postal service operations are disrupted,” Daniel said.
