Staff at the Registrar General’s Department on the island of Grand Bahama stopped work on Wednesday in protest of working conditions at their offices.
Staff Member Charmaine McIntosh told ZNS News, “we need to get out of this building. We was here to long and the roof is leaking, the mold is growing.”
Deeds and Documents Supervisor Floyd Feaster said, “the thing is leaking and it wets the rug and the rug becomes stink.” He continued pointing out that conditions are making staff members ill, “they are sick every week. They are complaining about chest pain, headaches.”
There are twenty staff employed at the Grand Bahama Registrar General’s Office. Assistant Registrar John Kemp declined to comment on the action taken by staff or the working conditions at the Freeport office.
