In light of the recent merger between FLOW and LIME, some 17 workers are due to receive termination letters by the end of June, it has been reported.
However, three workers have opted to leave, while four have requested voluntary separation.
The matter is expected to be discussed with management and the National Workers Union.
But St Lucia is not the only country that is being affected by this merger, as some 39 workers for FLOW Grenada are expected to be terminated before June 30.
The Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (ECTEL) is yet to give full approval for the legal merging of LIME and FLOW but a few weeks ago the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) was notified that all LIME stores will be re-branded using FLOW.
In April, ECTEL announced its displeasure over the apparent unwillingness of the parent companies of both FLOW and LIME to arrive at an agreement with the sub-regional regulator regarding the merger.
ECTEL’s chairman, Vincent Byron, speaking at the end of the 33rd ECTEL Council of Ministers meeting, said that licences given to telecommunication companies to operate in the jurisdictions controlled by the regulator will be adjusted to reflect a better quality of service to consumers.
