Ex-Caroni workers to see promised land soon

Tuesday, June 25 2013

Government has assured the bargaining agent for ex-workers of Caroni (1975) Ltd that the process for the long-awaited distribution of leases for residential and agricultural lands, will begin within two weeks.

The assurance was made Saturday to the All Trinidad General Workers Trade Union (ATGWTU) by Housing Minister, Dr Roodal Moonilal, Food Production Minister, Vasant Bharath, and Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Rudranath Indarsingh, at a meeting held at Rienzi Complex, Couva, according to the union president, Nirvan Maharaj.

Pleased with this development, Maharaj, in a release issued yesterday, said the union will continue to work with Government to ensure the issue finally comes to an end.

Noting that at the request of Caroni (1975) Ltd, the union had submitted a proposal on how it could have assisted Government to complete the allocation and distribution of residential and agricultural plots, as mandated by the December, 2007 Deyalsingh judgment, Maharaj said the ATGWTU was still awaiting a response.

The Deyalsingh judgment had mandated that as part of the Voluntary Separation of Employment Package during the closure of the sugar industry, every ex-worker be given a residential plot and/or a two-acre agricultural plot.

Claiming that the chairman of the Caroni (1975) Ltd Board, Jerry Hospedales and members of the board had “miserably and/or deliberately failed the ex-Caroni workers, and to the Deyalsingh judgment,” Maharaj called for Government to revoke their appointments, and appoint new directors.
