General Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU), Thomas Letang, has made a public appeal to DASPA CEO, Benoit Bardouille, to assist two of its employees with accommodation, after displacing them, by transferring them to Portsmouth.
According to reports, two union member employees were transferred by DASPA, after the union raised objection to the manner in which the employees were made to undergo mandatory drug testing.
Speaking on the DPSU's weekly radio program, Letang said these employees are now being forced to leave their homes in the wee hours of the morning to get to work in Portsmouth for 6am, with no transportation being provided.
He stated further that in some instances, they have been left stranded on the streets, to hitch rides to get to their homes, at late hours at night.
Letang called on Minister for Ports, Senator Mirium Blanchard, to intervene in the matter.
One of the persons affected by this ordeal also made a direct appeal to the DASPA CEO, to remedy the situation.
