Workers of the Architectural and Engineering Service Limited A.E.S.L have registered their displeasure over the nonpayment of their salaries for the past six months.

The department which is under the Ministry of Works and Housing provides architectural consultancy services to other government agencies and departments.

Despite the invaluable services rendered by the A.E.S.L, it's workers are in despair as they long for the day their salaries will hit their accounts the first time in six months.

According to a close source, the government agencies and departments for which they have worked have refused to pay for the services rendered them and that has subsequently resulted in the delay of the payment of salaries of their workers.

Dr. Ebenezer Ashley, the TUC Chairman of the A.E.S.L attributed the futility of several attempts to get the situation averted to the absence of a board of directors for the Service.

The workers have, however, threatened to advise themselves in case nothing is done as soon as possible, to avert the situation.
