Union serves JUTC 72-hour strike notice
The Union of Clerical Administration and Supervisory Employees (UCASE) today served a 72-hour strike notice on the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC).
UCASE says its action was prompted by what it says is a string of unfair and unjustified dismissals.
The union says the most recent dismissal is that of accident investigator, Donovan White, for allegedly writing an inaccurate time in the department’s register.
UCASE also says it’s concerned that 12 employees have been on suspension since last September.
According to the union, there is an apparent witch hunt at the company.
Union President, Vincent Morrison, contends that the JUTC management has failed to deal fairly and objectively with the employees over a protracted period of time.
