Fair treatment for TDC workers

Wednesday, March 15 2017

GOVERNMENT will ensure there is fair treatment for the employees of the Tourism Development Company (TDC) as its operations are wound up. Labour Minister Jennifer Baptiste-Primus gave this assurance in response to a question from Opposition Senator Wade Mark in the Senate yesterday.

At last Thursday’s post-Cabinet news conference at the Magdalena Grand Hotel in Tobago, Tourism Minister Shamfa Cudjoe announced that Cabinet has agreed to dissolve the TDC and establish two entities, one to focus on tourism in Trinidad and another for Tobago.

“Sometimes hard decisions have to be taken but we want to give the assurance that the workers of TDC will be treated fairly,” Baptiste-Primus said. Reminding senators that the TDC was formed as a limited liability company in 2004, Baptiste-Primus said it had been challenged over the years to achieve its mandate.

She explained that mandate included, tourism marketing and promotion, product control and development and tourism investment promotion.

Baptiste-Primus was confident that TDC employees would be able to apply for the jobs that will emerge, “from the new structure.” The minister underscored Government’s commitment to developing the tourism sector which is, “critical to the achievement of economic growth” in the country.
