The Antigua Trades & Labour Union (AT&LU) is reiterating its calls  for the building, which houses the headquarters of Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), to be abandond because of its physical condition.
President of the AT&LU Wigley George said he is of the view that “something is wrong with the building”, which is located at the junction of High Street and Independence Avenue.
“We are waiting now on a report from some experts who came to do a recent assessment of the building and when that is received, we will take it from there,” George said.
His renewed stance came almost a week after workers and customers were forced to evacuate the premises last Friday after smoke, reportedly caused by  faulty wiring, filled the entire building.
The Fire Deparment was summoned and after an initial assessement, the management of the statutory corporation gave the all-clear and instructed the employees to go back into the building.
However, the order was given shortly after for employees to abort their work activities for the day after a strong odour of diesel remained in the building.
