A member of parliament in St. Kitts and Nevis has condemned the Team Unity government for terminating multiple jobs in the public sector.

At least two termination letters have been recently published online, outlining the terms for the end of service.

Ms. Marcella Liburd, a member of parliament for Central Basseterre said there have been “dismissals of workers at every level. We have seen the treatment of persons who go to work daily, given no task and disrespecting the hoping that they would leave. This abuse of power is rampant in government departments and institutions.

Customs officer at the Customs and Excuse Department, Mr. Derrick Fyfield received a letter from the Skills Training Empowerment Program terminating his services.


“Please be informed that the Ministry of the OPM (Office of the Prime Minister) has advised that payments (Wages to you from the STEP be discontinued with effect from 30 November 2017. You are to complete the necessary vacation application form for you to proceed on leave with effect from Friday 1 December 2017,” the letter dated 30 November signed by Mr. Wendell Wattley, Director of STEP said
