CWU wants full payment for workers

Marlene Augustine Friday, March 24 2017

Communication Workers Union (CWU) Acting Secretary General, Clyde Elder is calling on the Government Human Resource Service Company Limited to pay retrenched workers their full term of contract.

Yesterday, outside the company’s building at Mulchan Seuchan Road, Chaguanas, 35 workers and union representatives engaged in a peaceful protest with the anticipation that the company will respond to the union to have discussions on a proper separation package for the workers.

Speaking with Newsday, Elder said even though they are not the recognised majority union for the company, it was their hope that the director of the company would meet with the union in keeping with good industrial relations.

“We are not the recognised majority for the Government Human Resource Service Company Limited workers, in fact they have no union. We were approached by a couple of the workers, who are now members of the union and we did in fact write a letter to the Acting CEO, Mr Jeffrey Lewis yesterday which he admitted to us that he received the letter yesterday (Wednesday) morning.” He added, “When there are top men in the company saying that all they are going to pay the workers was one month notice and a prorated gratuity, we have people with contracts that is going to end in February 2019 and in fact the only contract that is coming to an end is in January next year. We are saying that these people should be paid the full terms of their contracts.” Elder said during the protest, the workers were informed that one of the directors wanted to meet with the workers.

“...the workers informed the director that they were not in a frame of mind to attend such a meeting and the workers left.”
