GPL workers’ strike ends, Union hopes they will not be cheated in the arbitration process – 5th Mar 2013

gplThe strike action at GPL is off and the Union is hoping that an arbitration panel that was set up into the dispute can produce its findings in accordance with the labour laws.

The Ministry of Labour sent the matter to arbitration after both parties failed to reach an agreement in the wages and salary dispute.

General Secretary of NAACIE, Kenneth Joseph said, his Union is certain they are on the right grounds and don’t expect to be cheated in the arbitration process. He said it is a long battle and he is hoping for a favourable end.

The Union was forced to take industrial action following the utility company’s disregard for the collective labour agreement signed between the two parties some years ago.

Joseph expressed thanks to his members for standing up against GPL in defense of their rights and agreement.
