A former Fly Jamaica employee
Former Fly Jamaica workers in Jamaica are hoping that the receipt of individual redundancy letters this week will be another step towards them receiving outstanding salaries.
The former employees have been seeking redress since March when the company made all workers' positions redundant.
A member of the Jamaican group of former workers told RJR News Tuesday morning that the letters should be issued Tuesday and Wednesday.
The individual letters are supposed to indicate how much is owed to each person but he is also hoping that the letters will contain more specific information on when the former workers will be paid.
The former employee, who requested anonymity, said the group met with the Ministry of Labour on Friday, which reiterated the position that "there was not much it could do" since the issue was now a civil matter for which redress should be sought in court.
Fly Jamaica has been struggling to recover from last November's crash of one of its planes at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
As a result of the mishap, the airline was left without an aircraft.
