About a dozen staff protested outside the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Barbuda Affairs building on Independence Avenue yesterday, expressing frustration over long-standing poor working conditions.
The group, representing two of the building’s three floors, cited issues such as a musty odor, disorganized storage, ceiling holes, and, notably, bathroom problems, including a lack of water supply and unsanitary conditions.
Staff requested permission to use alternative bathrooms in the building but were denied. Additionally, the registry department faced safety concerns due to electrical cords scattered throughout the area.
Despite a previous warning from the fire department about these hazards, the issues remain unaddressed.
The ministry’s permanent secretary declined to comment.
