Dismissed FLA employees take issues to labour ministry

Three former employees of the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) who were recently dismissed have taken their fight to the Ministry of Labour.

Former Senior Director in charge of Audit and Complaints, Michael Dixon as well as Andrew Gordon and Milton Reid were sent home late last month by FLA CEO Shane Dalling.

Their attorney, John Junor, says a dispute has been reported to the labour ministry.

Junor says this was done after the FLA management failed to respond to a letter demanding that the termination be rescinded and the employees reinstated.

He says a conciliatory meeting at the labour ministry is being scheduled for next week.

The former employees were dismissed amid the probe by the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) into the granting of gun permits to persons of questionable character.
