Security guards of the Integrated Security Service company, providers of services at Government institutions in New Amsterdam, have reportedly not received their December 2017 salaries.
In a bid to express their frustration, the guards on Thursday picketed the
company’s office for their payments. According to the guards, many of them are single parents with school-age children.
They met outside of the company’s office at Trinity Street in New Amsterdam Berbice, and expressed their frustration at not having yet been paid.
They complained that they have worked inflexible hours and earned nothing.
Some say they have to beg for money to get to and from work. Their telephone and rent bills are due to be paid, but they are still in a bad financial position and are unable to honour those obligations.
Integrated Security Service provides service for the Region 6 Administration. In an invited comment, Region Six Chairman David Armogan said the administration has completely discharged its financial obligation to Integrated Security for the month of December.
Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of the company, Ghalee Khan, told this publication that the guards will be paid soon. According to him, the company does not have the names of all the guards working with the company, and the company is still working out some administrative issues.
