The posts were created in 2014. With the COVID-19 Pandemic, and since 2020 began, millions of persons around the world have lost their jobs. In Jamaica alone, since the pandemic became official on 10th March 2020 to date (May 18th, 2020), approximately 500,000 jobs have been lost or negatively impacted with pay-cuts or adjusted hours.

FOR STAFF MEMBERS OF UTech, JAMAICA ONLY!

Hi Colleagues,

May God keep you and family safe and well as we continue to navigate the deadly COVID-19, and are forced to be away from our University campus indefinitely.

UTech-Front-Gate.jpg

Please help me increase the speed and breadth of communication from our University to staff by encouraging the colleagues in your own division/facutly/college and your colleagues in other sections of our University to join the group.

I started this “UTech Jamaica Staff Facebook Group” last year in April 2019. My goal was for us who were already on facebook to have a place to gather to exchange University related information quickly. Initially 6 of us joined and I didn’t promote it.

However it is a year later, and we are battling this COVID-19 Pandemic while being distanced from our employer, UTech, Jamaica. I think the need for us to receive and share critical University related information is now stronger than ever.

If you have any technical difficulty joining the group please call /whatsApp me via 876-809-4274 and share your name and dept and I will follow up.

If you join and you know your other colleagues will not be offended, please add them to the group.

Thanks for considering this!
