Security guards to consider Pan Caribbean proposals

Published:Friday | August 30, 2013 | 9:12 AM

Security guards dismissed by the Pan Caribbean Sugar Company are today expected to consider proposals aimed at ending the impasse with their former employer.



They are to meet with their union representatives at the Mandeville Hotel in Manchester at 11 a.m. to decide on their next move.



One-hundred-and-thirty-two guards, who had been on indefinite leave, were sent home on August 15, despite ongoing talks over alleged breach of labour laws by the sugar company.



Vincent Morrison, the President of the National Workers' Union (NWU) says the workers will have three options to consider.



He says the union will resume talks with the company following today's meeting.



The guards are represented by the NWU, the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union and the University and Allied Workers' Union.
