The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT) is being dismantled to make way for the Sports Commission.
Since the arrival of chairman, Dinanath Ramnarine, SporTT has been downsized to the point where it is now a skeleton.
The latest casualties are seven workers who were told that their contracts will not be renewed. These contracts ended on December 31, 2017.
They are Abdul Assalam (projects coordinator), Sheldon Jardine (sport officer), Donna Hashanah (clerical officer), Khadeesha Worrell-Sobers (project assistant), Michelle Burke (receptionist), Jason Atkinson and Joseph Sookermany (construction coordinators).
These workers were informed two days before Christmas that their contracts would not be renewed.
Last year, SporTT fired CEO Adam Montserin, Anthony Blake (facility manager), Jeewan Kowlessar (internal auditor), Naveen Maraj (legal officer), Mellie Price (project administrator) while the remainder of the contracts of Darryl Stewart (procurement supervisor), Raj Ramtahal (senior manager facilities maintenance) and Travis Watson (project coordinator) was bought out.
SporTT has fired 19 workers in the last three months. There are plans by the Government to dissolve SporTT and replace it with the Sports Commission, with its specially-selected staff.
