  1. Too late, SL was already ruined by the unions especially NWU. SL has well known reputation in USA for having outrageous unions. This is the #1 reason that thousands of US companies that located plants in Haiti, DR, Grenenda, etc., instead of SL over the past few years. NWU's next memo about Karib Cable will have the usual nonsense about the "crisis", the breaking of labour laws, and "worker intimidation". In reality it is the union that intimidates the workers to join and then makes it extremely difficult for them to leave. They seem to think they own the Labour Dept right up to Minister level.

  2. I hope these unions don't ruin the economy of these companies and make them go out of operation.In America they are rejecting unions.Unions ruined DETROIT. Learn from bigger countries It failed there it will fail in St.Lucia too.
