K.H.M.H. Workers Union Prepares Letter to Send to Prime Minister Dean Barrow

Lidia Alpuche-Blake

The union has decided to petition the staff if they want the isolation unit at the K.H.M.H.  When we spoke to its leaders, two hundred and fifty signatures were collected against having the isolation unit inside the hospital.  That petition, according to President Lidia Alpuche-Blake will be sent to the COVID-19 National Oversight Committee for determination.

“We are going to officially write to the COVID-19 Oversight Committee that is chaired by the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition with the signatures and what the KHMH employees are asking them to look at. We were invited right after the meeting to the office of the Leader of the Opposition. So we sat with the Leader of Opposition and he is co chair of the oversight committee and we have presented our side. He says he is going to take everything and make a call to the Prime Minister and put in a word for us like say let’s listen to this guy. It is there. We went through what are our concerns, what we think could be the implications of the entire health system of the nation. He is the co chair of the oversight committee so we laid it to the table for him.”
