Some government workers operating from the Treasury Building in Bridgetown are outside the building, protesting work conditions there.
Nation Online understands the latest grievance is about the air conditioning, but this only adds to the list of problems.
Notes circulating on social media among staff said “enough was enough” and it was “time to take a stand.”
Those notes listed headaches, sinus problems, mental fatigue and high absenteeism among workers.
Staff members were awaiting the arrival of their union representative while management is at this time meeting in an effort to resolve the matter.
There have been environmental issues in the Treasury Building before. In January 2018, a pungent odour drove staff from the Accountant General’s Office from the building. There were reports of mould spores found on the compound and some staff were relocated.
Recently, Prime Minister Mia Mottley said the building would be converted to high-rise housing.
