US Embassy Guards Protest

[bitsontherun 83bXmSiu]

Guards attached to the Security Alliance company which overlooks security at the US embassy and all US agencies in Guyana stayed away from their jobs for a short time this morning protesting new working hours and shift changes that would force many of them to be heading home in the wee hours of the morning. The service is made up of mostly female guards and many of them expressed concern about the new hours although sources at the service said the new hours were being introduced to ensure punctuality.
The guards held out for over an hour this morning refusing to go to their posts, leaving the security guards already there to work overtime. Eventually management after meeting with a security official from the US embassy called in the guards indicated that they were scrapping the new time system and reverting to the old one.
Many of the guards also complained about their salaries and allowances. Those issues are also expected to be addressed. The meeting resulted in many of the security guards taking up their posts.

The embassy only recently changed the service that provided security. Hiring the new security alliance company over federal management which provided the service for several years.

    The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can repair if you werent too busy searching for attention.
