Workers’ Union says Labour Ministry's intervention unnecessary in Nestle dispute

The National Workers’ Union which represents several Nestle workers who took industrial action yesterday, says it did not attend an emergency meeting today called by the Ministry of Labour because it was not informed.

NWU Vice-president Howard Duncan says the workers took action after one of their colleagues was fired unjustifiably.

He told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that he was not aware of any meeting and that there was no need for the Ministry’s intervention as the workers had gone back to work.

He says the matter has now been brought to another level of Nestle’s management not previously involved in the issue.

The Labour Ministry has said it’s prepared to work with all parties to arrive at an amicable resolution of matters in dispute.
