Labour Ministry continue talks with Pan Caribbean, Unions representing guards

Published:Monday | August 19, 2013 | 8:54 AM

The Labour Ministry will make another attempt today to bring an end to the dispute between Pan Caribbean Sugar Company and the unions representing security guards who were laid off last week.

The 132 guards, who had been on indefinite leave, were sent home last Thursday.

Pan Caribbean says the decision to lay off the workers was as a result of the high incidences of security breaches at its Bernard Lodge, Monymusk and Frome sugar factories.

However, the move to lay off the workers came even as the parties continued to hold talks at the labour ministry.

On Friday, the unions put forward an eight point proposal they believe could resolve the issues.

In the interim, the unions want the guards to be reinstated.
