On Friday, May 29, the Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA or Authority) organized a teleconference call with solid waste haulers after being alerted to the possibility of a planned work stoppage. During the call, haulers voiced their frustration with outstanding accounts payable. The haulers, as well as their counterparts on St. Thomas and St. John, have set a tentative date of Monday, June 8, to begin the action.
The VIWMA will continue to talk with haulers and government officials and remain optimistic that these conversations will be effective in averting a job action.
