Accountant General's Department to be relocated

After much agitation by workers and their union, Cabinet has approved the temporary relocation of  the Accountant General's Department in downtown Kingston amid concerns about air quality at the location.

An alternative building has not yet been identified.

The workers have been complaining since they moved to the Church Street office last May.

The building was formerly used by the Ministry of Health.

Itching, difficulty breathing due to mold and a dust nuisance, are some of the problems the workers say they have been contending with.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Ministry of Finance explained that a submission was sent to Cabinet following a meeting between Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke and Accountant General's Department staff last Friday, during which they expressed frustration with the work environment.

Another meeting was held on Tuesday when the plan was outlined.
