Gibson to offer higher wages to tradesmen

Michael Gibson will offer higher salaries if he has to woo local tradesmen down to Union Island to construct the modern Union Island Secondary School. If this fails overseas labour from as far as South America will be sought.

At the contract signing ceremony last Tuesday, Michael Gibson of Gibson’s Construction said that one of the major challenges that the project will face is the shortage of skilled labour.{{more}}

As he expressed his gratitude to government for awarding him the $9.5 million project, Gibson said that his company will leave no stone unturned or country untapped to source the labour needed to expedite the work.

The project, which is phase one of the secondary school will include the construction of 12 classrooms, two science labs and a steelband room among other things.

The school will cater for up to 400 students from across the Southern Grenadines and is expected to be completed in 24 months.
