Dozens of temporary public officers have received their appointment letters.
Confirmation of this came from the National Union of Public Workers.
The NUPW says after waiting for over a year 52 nurses at polyclinics across the island and 28 persons at the level of administrative officer have received their letters of appointment.
According to the union, approximately 100 postal employees are soon expected to also receive their appointment letters.
Other categories of employees expected to be given letters soon are security guards, prison officers, clerical officers and maids.
The union says this action is government's response to its request that temporary officers with three year’s service and over be appointed.
Over five hundred public officers are expected to be appointed shortly.
