PRESS RELEASE – Following the recent public allegations made by The National Workers Union, Secure St. Lucia speaks out against the fabricated reports which have left many uncertain as to what really occurred.
Secure St. Lucia denies the allegations that employees were in any way threatened or coerced.
The activity in question, a Jounen Kweyol themed event, has been organised by the staff members in recognition of the island’s observance of Creole Heritage Month.
Management has willingly provided its support to ensure the event’s success, with no ulterior motive.
“This is a staff organised and executed event, with minimal input from management. Secure St. Lucia has never resorted to threatening its employees as we have the utmost respect for the service that they provide”.
According to Mr. Gabriel Pierre, Managing Director of Secure St. Lucia, “We have cooperated with the NWU at every turn and we will continue to endeavour to maintain a productive professional relationship with the Union.
However this requires their cooperation. Management was never contacted nor a dialogue initiated in an attempt to resolve any perceived issue”.
