When asked if the Tourism Minister has approached the Union as Richard Sealy claimed he would, the General Secretary expressed dismay this is yet to happen. She said if Management or Richard Sealy had a conscience then they should have not allowed developments to reach this stage…
BajanReporter.com tried directly to contact the same Minister of Tourism both via eMail and leaving a Voice Mail message at the official Two Mile Hill offices, however no response has been forthcoming… We will be attending a Breakfast meeting on Monday morning and seeing what comments will be made?
