Protest action averted by union members employed with Saint Lucia Marine Terminals Limited


 Share This On:

The National Workers Union (NWU) has temporarily suspended its intended protest ultimatum action by its members employed with Saint Lucia Marine Terminals Limited with operational base in Vieux Fort.

The Union, in a previous letter to the company dated February 4, 2013, conveyed the workers intent.  This position was taken because the company failed to compensate workers for retroactive overtime. Since then, the company has quickly replied to the NWU that approval was given and that the retroactive payment will be made on February 12, 2013.

The NWU has since conveyed its appreciation and its decision to temporarily suspend its intended protest action against Saint Lucia Marine Terminals Limited. The union’s letter was copied to the management and workers of Saint Lucia Air & Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA).

Meanwhile, the management of Sunshine Industries Limited and the National Workers Union will meet at the Department of Labour on Monday, February 11, 2013 in an attempt to resolve an industrial impasse.

The meeting will be chaired by Deputy Labour Commissioner Ray Narcisse.
