Sanitation workers at the Scarborough market are threatening to down tools over what they claim is the failure of the employer to treat with a number of outstanding issues.

Non-payment of overtime and a lack of proper equipment are cited among their grievances. More in this report from Elizabeth Williams.


Medical workers attached to the Accident and Emergency section of the Scarborough General Hospital, who would have come into contact with the second positive case in Tobago are still reporting for duty. 

They're considered an essential service, but the OWTU says this does not mean T&TEC workers should be expected to take unnecessary risk.
