On channel 8 last night, a protest is scheduled for 2:30pm at the WAPA office in Sunny Isle today.

so.... the "VI Spring" has started... hopefully it does not go the way of the London "Spring" LOL. Good luck getting them to do anything. They are dug in, and dug in good, and no one is letting go of their advantageous positions without extreme extraction procedures, I'm afraid.

WAPA's upper managment all ought out be fired. Repeated outages (more than usual the past few weeks) + sky high LEAC rates -- should make everybody who gets an electric bill -very angry. The line crews are great and have to suffer with the pee-poor management decisions.

The USVI citizens should lobby the govenrment to sell WAPA to a state-side utility company. Most are very profitable and could bring investment money for upgrades and changes. The government gets much needed CASH. What a thought. And if the WAPA managers are good performers (...as they think they are) then the utility would most likely keep them on.

If that scenario goes through, I predict a 100% purge and a re-hire on merit alone. And keeping your job on merit alone. Might be a LOT more new faces than old, especially at the upper levels. The worker bees, time would tell. I would imagine they would like to retain as many of those as at all possible during a transition, and gradually filter out slackers as replacements could be found for them.
