Shaw Park Complex in darkness
Trump: I am not a racist
The newly built Shaw Park Cul-
tural Complex has been without
electricity for the past 20 days.
The multi-million dollar facility,
which is used for several Carnival
and cultural events, lost power
after several power outages in
Tobago in December.
A press release issued by the
Office of the Chief Secretary, the
division where the Shaw Park
Complex falls, stated that the
facility became compromised
and non-functional upon the re-
turn of electricity after a power
outage in the lower Scarborough
area on December 27, 2017.
“Upon investigations it was
discovered that the ring main at
the Shaw Park Complex (SPC)
was seriously damaged. This
has resulted in an extended dis-
ruption in power supply to the
The release said discussions
have been on-going with T&TEC
and other relevant stakeholders
to determine liability and the
way forward for repairs.
In the interim a generator will
supply power to the SPC at inter-
vals throughout the day, while
action have been taken to quickly
rectify the situation so that oper-
ations can return to full service
in the shortest possible time.
The T&T Guardian was also in-
formed that there was no cancel-
lations to any scheduled events
at the facility.
Central Market workers
complain of dirty facility
Workers at the Central Market in
Port-of-Spain are complaining that
the facility is often left “nasty” as
they claim that the weekend staff
is not pulling their weight.
Tricia Moore, shop steward for
the Amalgamated Workers’ Union,
yesterday said workers had had
enough, adding that the problem
has been taking place for quite
Moore, who said her colleagues
were fed up, called on the week-
end staff to do what they were
paid to do otherwise remain at
“What happening now is since
early last year we have been no-
ticing that the workload on a
Monday is excessive because the
market is simply not cleaned on
“We are complaining but noth-
ing is being done. What is hap-
pening is not right and it has to be
corrected one time,” Moore said.
She recommended that the
short term staff be “rehired on
the weekend” to clean the market
after vendors ply their goods on a
Saturday and Sunday.
“We coming to work on a Mon-
day and have to do additional
work and that is unfair,” Moore
But one weekend worker, who
did not want to be identified, de-
scribed the allegations as untrue,
saying weekend staff members
have always ensured that the mar-
ket was clean.
“That is just old talk. We always
do what we get paid to do,” the
Deputy Port-of-Spain mayor
Hillian Morean also when con-
tacted yesterday said there were
systems in place to clean the mar-
ket on a weekend as there was a
compliment of short term staff to
He said the issue may be one
which entailed overtime pay-
ments as the corporation was not
in a position to pay this given the
current economic constraints.
But Morean said he was not
aware of the problem, saying it
was unfortunate that the matter
had reached the media before
being brought to the attention of
Annette Stapleton-Seaforth, the
chief executive officer of Port-
of-Spain City Corporation when
contacted yesterday assured that
the matter would be investigated
by the market administration.
She said to date she has not had
any complaints regarding week-
end staff or the market being left
