St. Lucia: Gov't to settle payments to former LIAT workers

The St. Lucia government says it's making available more than EC $6.3 million to pay severance and other termination benefits to workers of two companies including former non-unionised employees of the Antigua-based airline, LIAT Limited following the collapse of the company in 2020.

Prime Minister Phillip J Pierre told Parliament that his administration, as part of its policy to prioritize the interests of St. Lucian workers, will also be paying similar benefits to former employees of the foreign-owned garment manufacturing company, Majestic Industries Ltd that ceased operations in St Lucia in 2004 without paying the legal entitlements to the workers.
