Bauxite Company vs GTUC Over Allegations of Beating Threats to Workers By GM of the Company
The treatment of workers at the Rusal Bauxite Company is a troubling one for the Guyana trade union congress. The latest conflict is an allegation of beating threats to several workers by a general manager of the company. The company intends to fly in an international management team to investigate the claims against the manager.
But the Guyana Trades Union congress is not waiting until the outcome of any probe. The GTUC is convinced that there is truth to the allegations.
The union is saying that it would like the incident to be taken up by the Labour Ministry and the relevant authorities.
Rusal has had several problems with workers and the company has been looking at ways to strengthen its relationship with employees.
