CASE dismisses National Workers' Union concerns over new appointment
2013-10-07 09:54:44 | (0 Comments)
A senior official at the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), is disputing claims by the administrative and ancillary staff that due process was not followed in the selection of Marlon Palmer to act in the position of vice-president.
The National Workers' Union (NWU), which represents staff, is alleging that CASE overlooked other qualified candidates for the position.
NWU vice-president, Howard Duncan says Palmer who took up office on October 1, was not among persons shortlisted for the post.
Duncan is also claiming that Palmer had sat on the panel which interviewed the shortlisted candidate.
However, a senior official at the Portland-based college told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that Palmer was asked by the board to act in the position until a permanent replacement has been identified.
The official also notes that following complaints from the NWU, the matter as referred to the Industrial Relations division of the Ministry of Education for its review.
