Former national Telecommunication and now GT&T employees continue fight for benefits

protest 17thThe struggle continues for the Former Guyana Telecommunication Corporation now GT&T pensioners to get their rightful pension and gratuity.

 This is after two decades of trying to resolve the issue in an amicable way.

 Today the pensioners took their grievances to the ministry of finance in another quest to get what they said they rightfully deserve.

The retired employees told this newscast that for decades the government has shown total disregard for their years of service by offering them a meager 18,000 a month pension.

The issue date back to 1990 when the company was privatized. The workers said then they were given letters stating that they can continue in the employ of GT&T and their service will be treated as continuous and unbroken.

According to the workers the privatisation board recommended that the government pay all unpaid gratuities immediately, but that decision was never adhered to.

The pensioners told this newscast that they are beginning to feel left out and treated like second class citizens.
