Suspended TCL workers re-instated

rogetAll suspended Trinidad Cement Ltd workers have been reinstated.

Yesterday, eleven workers were escorted by Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union (OWTU) president general Ancel Roget and executive members through the gates of the Claxton Bay cement producer. The workers were allowed back on the compound following discussions with the trade union and the company’s new board of directors.

The reinstatement of the workers yesterday was described as historic by the OWTU.

They were among workers who faced disciplinary action after 600 employees walked off the job over stalled wage negotiations in 2012.

“We feel very vindicated this morning, the OWTU and the workers of TCL. This morning ten out of 11 workers returned to work. The only reason why it don’t have all 11 going to work this morning is simply because one of those workers, I am informed, is out of the country,” he said.

Roget said the workers were within their rights to take strike action in 2012.
