PRESS RELEASE – Conciliatory discussions between the management of St. Jude Hospital and the National Workers Union (NWU) continued Friday, August 7, 2015 at the Department of Labour.
The talks which were held under the chairmanship of an official from the Department of Labour went on for four (4) hours. The parties extensively discussed the termination of a worker by the hospital management.
The Union has consistently pointed out that the management decision to terminate his employment is harsh, high-handed and unjustifiable.
Separate discussions were held with the parties after which the proceedings were adjourned until next week Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at 10.00 a.m.
The Department of Labour has urged both sides to do a little bit of reflection to be better prepared for the next meeting. The Minister for Labour is expected to be at the said meeting.
