In the latter part of 2012, workers employed with CARIMAN Ltd. were forced to take industrial action to have the company reach agreement on an outstanding wages matter.
The agreement was reached during a meeting at the Department of Labour. It was also agreed that retroactive payments would be made during the early stages of 2013.
A few weeks ago, General Manager Paul Williams, through a telephone conversation, requested the Union to submit a date on which they would prefer the payments to be made. The NWU followed up with a letter dated February 20, 2013 stating that payments should be made no later than Easter 2013.
Management confirmed receipt of this letter and indicated that all the necessary statistical data was collated to facilitate the payment.
Easter 2013 has since passed without any payments being made to the workers.
The NWU has requested the intervention of the Ministry of Labour in the said matter.
