Thankful and cautiously optimistic is how the Trinidad and Tobago Registered Nurses Association describes the government’s announcement to financially reward ministry of health front line personnel who worked during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Responding to the news in a News Power Now interview on Wednesday, TTRNA President, Idi Stuart, said it is not the first time promises on this issue has been made to the workers by the government.

Mr Stuart said he is aware of this promise being made on about three times before.

Mr Stuart said the time is now right for it to materialise.

There is also a desire by Mr Stuart for nursing and midwifery personnel now in temporary positions to be made permanent and outstanding increments, gratuity and pension payments be settled.
