Union accuses CEO of Guyana Power and Light Company of bringing the company into disrepute
While the CEO of GPL is saying that the company will continue what it calls, its right sizing exercise, the union NACCIE is accusing the utility’s CEO of bringing the company into disrepute.
In a strongly worded release to the media, Naccie pointed to Dindyal’s introduction of the loss reduction unit, that was resisted by the union.
The union pointed to the hiring of former policemen and soldiers to flush out suspected electricity thieves instead of improving the transmission and generation systems.
The workers representative union NACCIE has been complaining about placing people on the breadline, but the CEO of the utility, Bharrat Dindyal, said, that it is not a downsizing exercise, in fact, he referred to the move as right sizing.
The union has criticized Dindyal for mis-managing and in some cases micro-managing the utility, but Dindyal said, all that he has done, is with the best interests of the company in mind.
The union is strongly objecting to any renewal of the CEO’s contract stating that his basic salary of $12000 US a month and other incentives is way too much for his poor performance at the utility.
According to NACCIE, Bharrat Dindyal’s mismanagement of this heavily subsidised corporation has made this vital utility an overbearing burden on poor Guyanese tax payers.
