[Trinidad] Piarco Fire officers plan massive sick out
09/03/2015

A massive sick out is planned for today and tomorrow by Fire Personnel at Piarco Station.

Sources told Looptt that this action will cause chaos as flights will not be able to leave or enter Piarco International Airport as there will not be enough coverage of officers to ensure the safety of the airplanes.

The source said officers are fed up of the slow pace of salary negotiations and are not prepared to take 9.2 percent the Chief Personnel Officer (CPO) Stephanie Lewis is offering.

The fire officers are calling for 18 percent.

Looptt understands that Security Guards who are not trained will be manning the airport due to the Fire officers sick out.

Other officers are expected to plan the same action in various stations, as they say a clear message must be sent to the CPO.
