WIFOL President Theophillus Thompson told reporters at Thursday's press briefing that he also dispatched a second letter to the Minister of Economic Affairs Franklin Meyers requesting a meeting to discuss government's policy when granting business licenses. Thompson said that he sent the first letter to Minister Meyers requesting a meeting when he heard that Simpson Bay Resort Management Company (Royal Resorts- Quantum Investments) was negotiating the sale of the real estate with Hard Rock International.
Thompson said that the Minister of Economic Affairs did not respond to his first letter but he dispatched a second letter when he read in the media that Hard Rock International met with the Council of Ministers on Tuesday to apprise them on the negotiations. Thompson said when the WIFOL heard that Hard Rock was negotiating with SBRMC he personally spoke to the Minister of Economic Affairs expressing the unions concerns. He said the union wants know what type of concessions government would be giving the investors.
