PWA executive meets SLP leader

Members of the Police Welfare Association (PWA) executive held a meeting Monday with opposition leader, Philip J. Pierre during which several issues were discussed.

They included  the matter  of promotions in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).

PWA President, Travis Chicot, told the Times  that the organisation is currently in the process of developing recommendations on what the process of promotions should be for the various ranks.

He said he was aware of ‘rumours’ about the existence of a promotion list, but disclosed that the PWA executive has not confirmed the reports.

As a result, Chicot said he would not comment on the matter.

However he said the PWA executive is  ready to discuss the RSLPF’s  promotion policy.

“One thing I must say is that promotions are very important in the organisation – it is a way of paying back to persons for their success and hard work in the organisation, so we would love to see promotions soon,” Chicot said.

Monday’s meeting came in response to a written request from the leader of the opposition.

Chicot described the meeting as informative and interesting.

He told the Times that the PWA executive plans to seek a meeting with Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet.

In addition to promotions, the meeting with the leader of the opposition discussed other matters including  crime and the IMPACS matter, it was disclosed.

    I do not see a problem with talking to the opposition. UWP did it just before the election. The comedy is that the problem was there over the last 6 years under the same SLP government and they did not have a clue to solve the problem. Now they are out. What a show! Hahaha

    So they want to come back home. You think Allen who has been mooching on his father for years could help solve your problem? He fooled you. And you have now coming to your Hypocritical senses. He made you believe he could ‘poof’ Impacs away. Smh. How about all those nicely deck police cars he promised? But he takes your money and Parties away at Gala dinners at Sandals.

    Although the leader of the opposition requested the meeting with the PWA he did not seem to have much to say to the Association. Why? Was it a case where the report falls short of contents or the Opposition leader simply did not know what he should say but only wanted to stir the imaginary pot of discontentment?

    What are they going to achieve by speaking to an individual with absolutely no influence or consequence like a Phillip JnPierre? That is so dumb.

    If PWA really want to talk to the SLP leader is Kenny they needed to meet.
    However PWA needed to ask Pierre about the true origins of this whole IMPACS mess. If Pierre is man enough to tell the truth.

    SLP at it again trying to buy public service unions and it seems there are always some puppies willing to sell the People they supposed to represent for a few pieces of silver. Pwa members should remove this executive ASAP before it’s too late. Cannot imagine they went to discuss impacs and promotions with leader of opposition when it was his government that created both mess. Rslpf members deserve better than this.
