Freeport Grand Bahama — Former workers at the now closed bowling ally on Grand Bahama are fighting for justice as their former employer refuses to compensate them following business closure. We are told the owner continues to brags about how he’s getting off with the people’s money.
This is just one of several incidents now unfolding on Grand Bahama island. Bahamas Press has learned workers headed into a labour board meeting yesterday with their former owner, Peter Von Avedelle, but got no resolve.
“Peter strolled into a labour board meeting yesterday in short pants – no doubt having total lack of respect for the people – and coldly told his former workers how they would not get a dime from him,” one irate officer in the department told BP.
We are told Peter is a close friend of a senior official in the department who has allowed the matter to drag on for months.
The workers we are told are distraught over the situation and are unable to afford a legal representative to battle their case. “We know that their thinking is, these people have no money for lawyers, so to hell with them,” one angry family member of a former employee said.
Peter we know is a proud member of CHRIST THE KING Anglican Church in Freeport and acts as if he has done nothing wrong. PAY THE PEOPLE PETER, PAY THE DAMN PEOPLE!!!!
We ask once again, WHO IS SPEAKING UP FOR THE PEOPLE OF GRAND BAHAMA?
