PRESS RELEASE – The National Workers Union (NWU) has called on Acting Labour Commissioner, Mr. Ray Narcisse to step in urgently and make all the necessary arrangements to establish the process that would determine clearly the recognition issue between the Management of First Citizens Investment Services Ltd and the National Workers Union.
The NWU in a letter to the Acting Labour Commissioner dated March 2, 2015, submitted a recognition application on behalf of workers employed with the financial institution.
The NWU said that to date, the matter is still outstanding and is raising serious cause for concern.
The NWU is of the opinion that this matter is trivial as section 357 of the Labour Act No. 37 of 2006 clearly sets out the procedures to be followed.
The NWU is still awaiting a positive reply from the Acting Labour Commissioner.
Meanwhile the NWU has decided to inform its members in other financial institutions that it represents of this industrial development.
