G4S employees vote today

NWU

Over 200 cashiers, supervisors, armed and general security guards employed with G4S Security Company will begin voting in a secret ballot poll today, February 19, 2013 from 7 a.m.

A three-man mobile operational unit from the Department of Labour including Labour Inspectors, Messrs. Kissinger Smith and Glen St. Croix and Deputy labour Commissioner Ray Narcisse will oversee the process. Several weeks ago the National Workers Union (NWU) submitted a recognition claim on behalf of the security guards to the Department of Labour.

As a result of the poll, security guards based in Vieux Fort, Soufriere and Castries will now have the opportunity to determine their choice of trade union representation.  The exercise when completed will bring closure on a matter of significant industrial relations in the security services sector.

The NWU already has the bargaining rights for four security companies operating on the island.
