KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The management of CVM Television has reportedly agreed to reinstate, a worker whose redundancy sparked protests by angry employees.




The reinstatement should take effect by Friday.



The worker was the chief union delegate for employees represented by the National Workers Union (NWU).



According to NWU Vice-president Granville Valentine, the CVM management opted to go the route of reinstating the chief union delegate after the Labour Ministry stated that the matter would be referred to the Industrial Dispute Tribunal if the parties failed to reach an agreement.



The parties had been before the labour ministry for most of last week without any settlement being reached.



Valentine says the union is happy that an agreement has finally been reached.



He says the union will be closely monitoring the situation.
