Marlin steps down and his successor will immediately have his hands full on Monday.
Government tried desperately to find money to help PSS meet its payroll obligations for November. But to no avail apparently. On Monday morning, the acting demissionary minister for General Affairs will have to face the postal workers and their union and explain to them why they cannot get paid for November.
Obviously, plans for the reconstruction aid funds will have to include allocating some of that money towards financially strengthening the position of the postal services. No doubt some of the workers will have to be laid off. But in any event, the Kingdom government has a responsibility to guarantee the existence of the postal services in this country.
SMCU union leader Ludson Evers said in a radio interview recently that there might be a light at the end of the tunnel for PSS. That light may very well be the Dutch train bringing aid and relief to PSS. That will be one particular sign of relief we can all collectively utter when that finally happens. Mail, anyone?
