Former Jolly Beach employees begin to collect severance payments at ABWU


Former employees of Jolly Beach Corporation have begun to collect severance payments at the Antigua and Barbuda Workers’ Union.

The severance payments come more than two years after the hotel property ceased operations.

Since then, the workers and the Union have been engaged in a protracted severance battle with the Government after it acquired interest in the hotel property.

More than 400 former employees will be issued severance payments between Thursday and Friday.

  1. Thank you GASTON BROWNE ADMINISTRATION and Mr. Barrett 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

    Big up to “Sister Sherry” for requesting the PM to help the former Jolly Beach workers 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩


    Jolly Beach is NOW ACCEPTING BOOKINGS!! Doors open on the 20th!


    • Smh, now scroll down and read the other article caption, MINISTER OF HEALTH WANTS 200,000 USD………….and applaud Gaston 🤡 and his government.

    • The UPP trucks rolling on to win the next General Election … 🚚🚛🚚🚛🚚🚛

      NO IFS, NO BUTS, OR MAYBES ABLP – as Machell Montano sang: 🎶 ‘The Party Done … Party, Party, Party DONE’ 🎵

      Check it out on YouTube.

      Harold Lovell and UPP should adopt this particular song in their upcoming campaign on December 19th, simply to counteract all of Gassy’s broken promises in governance; and remind him also of the 50 years of Birdism and Browneism where Antigua went backwards …

  2. Finally after all the delaying and politicking by the UPP union. ……. Spend it wisely. Save some too. The Prime Minister is a man of his word.

  3. Congratulations to Gaston Browne & his administration…… He is a true replica of Moses leading his people to the promise land…… God bless you PM Browne!! At the polls our support will definitely be behind you. Where as your administration provided for those former workers of Jolly Beach, other institutions like AWU who is aligned with UPP deprived them of that extra income.

    • I’ve heard it all now.

      Comparing GASTON BROWNE to MOSES.

      You guys discourses just beggars belief. However, I’m thoroughly enjoying how you continue to PASQUINADE and PARODY your damn selves on this public forum. Beautiful!

      Keep the jokes coming 😆 … Mi rib ’till ah hut mi boss 😅🤣😂

      • … and when Gassy done part the sea down ah Devils Bridge, I might just believe he favour Moses!

        Help mi please, * Brixtonian gasps for breath* the constant hilarity ah now hurt mi ‘tomach ad well … he he he!

  4. Franz, spell the word ‘grateful’. g-r-e-a-t-f-u-l.
    I hope the Jolly Beach Workers can do a much better job than Franz or the Barbudans for that matter.
    Because ungratefulness is worse than witchcraft.
    The government had no legal obligation to this until they acquired the hotel for the main purpose of putting the employees back to work and getting their severance paid. And it took skillful negotiations to get this done. Just like saving all the ABIB depositors their monies. No one lost a dime. Although the risk was there that everyone could have lost their hard-earned savings.
