Staff Morale at Marpin 2k4 on Front Burner for WAWU
The Union representing employees at Marpin 2K4 says that it is concerned about staff morale, as staff continue to be in limbo over the sale of the company.
There have been attempts to sell the assets of Marpin since 2014, when the Dominica Social Security became the sole share holder.
A number of players in the market have expressed interest in acquiring the company including a major telecoms provider on the island and its former owner Ron Abraham, but to date the company remains unsold.
General Secretary of the Water Front And Allied Workers Union, Kertiste Augustus says that Union is concerned with impact the delay in the sale is having on its members.
