Never agreed to be taken advantage of and not be paid

Dear Editor,
It was promised that on January 24, 2019, all staff were supposed to be paid in full for the months of November 2018 and January 2019, along with overtime services for November.
A message from the Chairman and CEO, Paul Ronald Reece, stated that the Kingston office shut its doors along with the new office and only the Georgetown office will remain functional so as to facilitate passengers.
More recently, in their address to us, they said, “We truly understand the hardships you have experienced and advise you that salaries to staff will be paid on Friday, March 22, 2019”.
After they failed to pay us on March 22, Captain Reece ensured us that we would receive our pay within seven working days from the date previously mentioned.
To date, no payments have been received.
We learned of our dismissal from the news that the company will shut its doors on March 31, 2019. There were no announcements, termination letters or promise to pay us our salaries.
We agreed to work and receive payment at a later date in support of the company because they indicated to us that should they dismiss us, they would have to pay to train a new set of employees. However, we never agreed to be taken advantage of and not be paid.
