WATCH: Pierre Declares Zero Tolerance For All Forms Of Workplace Harassment


Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre, who also carries the National Security Ministerial portfolio, expects the highest levels of integrity and professional standards from every police officer serving in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force.

During a recent exchange with members of the RSLPF, Prime Minister Pierre took the opportunity to reinforce his zero tolerance for all forms of harassment in the workplace and condemned the practice of quid pro quo sexual harassment.

  1. There is a lot of abuse in many goverrment offices by some who believe they have power. Many bosses deprive workers of their lunch break having meetings during that time and also pressure them to work late everyday. They quarrel with their staff in the presence of others belittling them and making them look small. Time to weed out those dinosaurs who believe young people have issues when they are the ones with no manners or respect. There is a ghetto boss in one said office who needs to go

  2. Hon PM, the department of nursing at SALCC is a model for harassment in the workplace. We as students can testify of that. The administration is that department has immunity.

  3. Here PJP goes blowing hot air again. I have heard of sexual harassment in the RSLPF, lots of unwanted advances by males, especially their supervisors. And I agree that it needs to stop. But apparently when those accused are party supporters, everything is done to cover it up.

    One high ranking male officer of that organization has been accused of rape by several females, but the allegations have all been suppressed with certain officials saying that no report has been or was made. If so, why then were statements recorded from two of the female accusers and why were they medically examined – according to my source. Where are those statements and where are those medical reports? Were they destroyed? Take care, just take care that they don’t resurface at the appropriate time. So Mr. PJP charity should begin at home. The females in question are known, so just direct that they be questioned and ask for copies of the reports of the medical examination. And by the way the focus shouldn’t only be on the RSLPF, there are allegations of sexual harassment across the public service – even by some of your ministers and especially your music box. So if you are serious Mr. Sir start with those closest to your party and then venture out.

  4. Is what he and his cronies doing to the leader of the opposition not workplace harassment? What happen to mate? Lord free us of this Cole’ clueless idiot.

  5. I am a St. Lucian living abroad and I must tell you.
    this in honesty. When I read some of the issues presented in the various forums I am extremely embarrassed. This is 2022 and some of the issues should have already been addressed and resolved a long time ago.

    The cultural of those with name in power and those who feel they have authority to do whatever whenever to whomever also needs to stop. Crimes going unresolved for years in an Island of 238 sq. miles. Some of your judicial laws need to be revamped because they make absolutely no sense for present day.

    That’s why I believe the crime situation needs outside intervention for resolution….too many of you guys know each other personally (politicians, attorneys, doctors, nurses, business owners, custom officers, bank tellers, etc.etc etc.).

    Someone I know visited St. Lucia a few months ago and stopped by the Land Registry to make an inquiry. Before the individual left an employee at the registry called and informed another family member living abroad that this person stopped by. This ought not to be ..nurses are informing others of patients diagnosis, bank tellers are sharing clients account balances …you guys needs help in a hurry.
    FAMILIARITY BREEDS CONTEMPT and that’s the reality in St. Lucia.
    The my girl my boy syndrome needs to go out the window like yesterday. You guys are all too familiar with each other and that’s a VERY SERIOUS problem without resolution.
