On the heels of the murder of workman at the Queen’s Park Savannah on Sunday, workers hired to transport materials used to construct vending booths for the upcoming Carnival season, are threatening to shut down work unless the issue of security is addressed.
The threats came days after 26-year-old loader Akeil Archer was gunned down near the Paddock after completing work on a booth.
At the time of the shooting last Sunday, Archer was in the tray of a Mazda T3500 truck that was about to leave the area opposite TGIF, when gunmen pulled up in a white four-door pickup truck and opened fire on him.
The labourers are refusing to work at the Savannah unless their safety could be guaranteed.
If this threat is not address, it would mean that the deadline for the construction of the vending booths would not be met.
