TCI Unaware of Camillo’s 200 Sandals Job for Vincies


(iWitness News) The Government of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) says it has no plan to allow 200 Vincentians to be employed at the Sandals Beaches Resort there, as Minister of Finance Camillo Gonsalves announced in Parliament last week.

Gonsalves, in a ministerial statement, on Tuesday, said that his government, “ as of a few days ago” had concluded discussions with Sandals Resorts International “that will result in Sandals Resorts International employing 200 Vincentians within the coming weeks” to take up positions at a new Beaches resort in TCI.

“While this may be their plan, it is certainly not the plan of this government when we have so many Turks and Caicos Islanders who are out of work presently,” Arlington Musgrove, TCI’s minister of Immigration, Citizenship, Labour and Employment Services said, on Monday.

“I can assure you that we have not had any discussions along these lines and in the event, we do, we will always look out for the betterment of our people first,” Musgrove further said in a press statement.
