Bahamas National Festival Commission BNFC officials said outstanding payments are currently being processed for Junkanoo Carnival workers.
In a statement, BNFC officials said payments are being processed in compliance with standard government procedures and the BNFC is working tirelessly to ensure that the process is completed as quickly as possible.
“Our staff will be calling all of our Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival 2015 workers with times for pickup for their cheques once the process is complete. We appeal for understanding as we work to ensure everyone is compensated for their contributions,” the statement read.
The BNFC would like to thank the many workers and suppliers who contributed their time, efforts and services to make the inaugural Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival a successful event.
“Without the hard work of volunteers, paid staff and contracts the event would not have been the resounding success that it was,” the statement said.
“During the three-day event, we mobilized hundreds of Bahamians who diligently offered their time to ensure all Junkanoo Carnival patrons had a truly enriching experience.”
