UPDATE: Medical technologists end sick out
Normal operations have resumed at the Blood Bank and the National Public Health Laboratory in Kingston as medical technologists have gone back to work.
This after the Ministry of Health last evening settled the payment of retroactive sums to the more than 80 workers.
The medical technologists had been on sick-out since Monday to protest the non-payment of the money.
This was the second time in a week that the workers took industrial action over the matter.
St Patrice Ennis, General Secretary of the Union of Technical, Administrative and Supervisory Personnel (UTASP), says the union and the workers are pleased that the matter has come to an end.
