G4S Security Company employees to participate in union ballot poll

NWU

 Share This On:

Over 200 cashiers, supervisors, armed and general security guards employed with G4S Security Company will participate in a secret ballot poll on February 19, 2013.

The secret ballot poll will facilitate a process that would ultimately determine one way or another a recognition claim submitted on behalf of the security guards to the Department of Labour by the National Workers Union (NWU).

The process will be administered by officials from the Department of Labour with representatives of the company and the National Workers Union present.  Both the NWU and G4S Security Company have agreed to a Mobile Unit exercise that would not inflict any form of disruption of the services provided by the company to its clients.

The process will commence at 7.00 a.m. and should be held throughout the day. Employees at Soufriere, Vieux Fort and operational bases in Castries will be given the right to demonstrate their freedom of association.

Meanwhile the National Workers Union has written to the management of Guardsman Security requesting its full cooperation while the NWU conducts its mop up operation of having workers join the National Workers Union.
