(DNO) The Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU) has secured the jobs of five out of eight time keepers employed at the Public Works Corporation.
The other three have been laid off by the company but General Secretary of the DPSU Thomas Letang said they were promised new positions in a few weeks.
“Management also agreed that before the 16 employees were affected last month, these time keepers were laid off. The employees told us that they were not aware of their rights. We have requested that the employees should be paid,” he said.
Meantime Letang said it was agreed that any further matters of layoff should be discussed.
