Press Release:–  In a letter dated October 20, 2021, the National Workers Union (NWU) has
requested an urgent meeting with Minister of Health, Wellness and Elderly Affairs, Hon. Moses Jn. Baptiste.

This request comes on the heels of a general meeting held with Community Health
Aides at UNITY HOUSE, home of the National Workers Union in Sans Souci, Castries. Many unpleasant situations were highlighted including:

 Discrimination experienced by them as front line workers
 Exposure to risks as it pertains to their overall engagement with patients
 Inadequate protection while performing their responsibilities
 Inadequacy of the allowances being paid
 Deprivation from access to the benefit of the waiver of customs duties upon
acquisition of a vehicle

Traditionally the National Workers Union has met with the hierarchy of the Ministry of Health in quarterly meetings and we hope that this new Minister will facilitate the continuation of this process as it provides a forum for consultation and amelioration of industrial matters affecting these key health sector employees.
