Opposition leader, Philip J. Pierre, has expressed concern about the imminent closure of loss-making Radio Saint Lucia (RSL).
The planned closure of the station was announced on Tuesday by Prime Minister Allen Chastanet during his budget address.
“I am concerned about the human element – it’s people who work there,” Pierre said.
He told reporters that there must be concern about the employees at the state-owned radio station, their future and their families.
According to the Castries East MP, it is not just a matter of closing the radio station.
The leader of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) questioned whether the government has an appropriate plan in place for addressing the concerns of the workers at RSL.
