Normal operations resume at FLA; representatives to meet with Finance Ministry today
Normal operations have resumed at the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA), as representatives from the entity have been summoned to a meeting with the Finance Ministry, later today (January 18).
Chief Executive Officer of the FLA, Shane Dalling gave IRIE FM News, the update, this morning.
It comes after workers walked off the job, on Tuesday, to register dissatisfaction with the Finance Ministry’s handling of issues relating to compensation.
The group noted that after months of negotiations regarding compensation, the Ministry had communicated that there would be no change in salaries.
The staff said it viewed the Ministry’s response as a blatant disregard for their right to proper compensation.
However, Mr. Dalling said the workers resumed duties today, as a meeting has been scheduled with the Finance Ministry.
It is to get underway at 4, this afternoon.
