The United Workers Party (UWP) says it regrets the closing of the Hess oil facility in Saint Lucia.
“Amerada Hess, the owner of the facility, and its patriarch, Leon Hess, were good corporate citizens who delivered their part of a longstanding agreement,” the UWP said in a statement.
The UWP is requesting that the Government make the agreement between the new owners open and transparent, as was the case between Amerada Hess and the government of Sir. John Compton.
“The party further urges all Saint Lucians to pay close attention to developments…” the party said.
“The UWP stands ready to add its voice to the process of negotiations in the Parliament of Saint Lucia when the new agreement is debated in the best interest of the people.”
