Employees of the National Met Service, stationed at Kingston's Manley International Airport are restive, with some of them staying off the job to protest poor working conditions.
This was confirmed on Friday by St. Patrice Ennis, General Secretary of the Union of Technical, Administrative and Supervisory Personnel, St. Patrice Ennis.
Ennis, speaking with Beyond the Headlines host Dionne Jackson Miller, said the workers had communicated their workplace challenges to the responsible Permanent Secretary last week but had not yet received a response.
He said the protest is currently confined to the Kingston based airport but noted that workers at other Met Service facilities could take similar action in solidarity with their colleagues who are directly affected by the poor workplace conditions.
Mathew Samuda, the Minister having direct oversight responsibility for the Met Service had told Radio Jamaica News a week ago that talks would be held shortly to address the issues raised by the workers.
