Work­ers at the Wa­ter and Sewage Au­thor­i­ty (WASA) are cur­rent­ly up in arms over the de­layed pay­ment of De­cem­ber salaries.

This af­ter an in­ter­nal memo was sent around to staff on Wednes­day (De­cem­ber 19) ad­vis­ing work­ers that "there has been a de­lay re­gard­ing the pay­ment of salaries."

The com­pa­ny told work­ers that they were "work­ing as­sid­u­ous­ly" to have the is­sue cor­rect­ed.

Line min­is­ter for WASA, Pub­lic Util­i­ties Min­is­ter Robert Le Hunte, said he was un­aware of the is­sue but was go­ing to look in­to it im­me­di­ate­ly.

"I'm sure it is tem­po­rary," he told Guardian Me­dia.

He re­as­sured the work­ers that they would be paid as soon as pos­si­ble.

More on this sto­ry as in­for­ma­tion comes to hand.
