More meetings for Pan Caribbean/unions representing dismissed guards

Published:Tuesday | September 3, 2013 | 7:42 AM

There is to be another meeting between unions representing dismissed security guards and the management of the Chinese-owned Pan Caribbean Sugar Company at the Labour Ministry today.

The unions were instructed by the guards to return to the negotiating table following a consultation in Mandeville, Manchester last week.

The unions and the guards had met to consider proposals aimed at ending the impasse with their former employer.

Assistant island supervisor of the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU) says it is expected that a clearer path will be charted at that meeting to settle the dispute.

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.

The guards are represented by the National Workers’ Union, the BITU and the University and Allied Workers' Union.
