After the all clear was given and the tropical storm watch discontinued at 5AM this morning, a call went out on the CBC radio stations for all Transport Board employees to report for work. This was understandable. However what I do not understand was why this call was being made by Patrick Gollop, Public Relations Consultant for the Transport Board. Why wasn’t this made by the General Manager, Sandra Forde or the Manager of marketing Lynda Holder or Operations Manager Desmond Sabir or the Human Resources Manager?
Why was this call being made by Patrick Gollop who apparently isn’t even on the staff of Transport Board?
This occurrence speaks to an unprecedented level of political interference at the Transport Board by a political appointee given the usurping of the function of calling staff back to work by senior management of the Transport Board. Were all the senior management team of Transport Board incapacitated at that time that they couldn’t make the call? Were they out of the country?
