Operations at courts in 6 parishes impacted as prosecutors take industrial action in protest of better wages
Operations at some of the island’s courts have been impacted as prosecutors employed to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions have taken industrial action in protest of better wages.
In a statement this morning (July 20), the prosecutors said they have called an urgent meeting to address concerns regarding their welfare, well-being and the way forward.
They said the meeting follows letters written to Finance Minister Dr Nigel Clarke on May 26, and July 12, of this year, expressing several concerns and indicating that a meeting was required to discuss these concerns.
The disgruntled prosecutors say to date, there has been no response to the letters, adding that they perceive this lack of response as utter disregard and disrespect to them.
Director of Communications at the Court Administration Division, Kadiesh Fletcher confirmed that Circuit Courts in six parishes have been impacted.
