JTA to open new western Ja office
LUCEA, Hanover — The Jamaica Teachers Association (JTA) has acquired a new office space at a cost of $36 million to house its western Jamaica branch.
JTA president Dr Mark Nicely said another $15 million is to be spent on equipping the building which is located within the Fairview Shopping Complex in Bogue, St James.
The facility is expected to open early next year.
The new space which will be equipped with a conference room, will replace the present location on Barnett Street in St James, which also houses the JTA's credit union.
"It will be a nice office space, which will lend to you the members ease of parking. It is right there along the stretch with your Courts, banks, medical facilities and pharmacies. All of those are now in walking distance," stated Dr Nicely, who was addressing teachers in Hanover recently.
