Workers' union seeking Dispute Tribunal intervention in Lamasa issue
2013-10-31 12:10:02 | (0 Comments)
The National Workers' Union (NWU) has asked the Ministry of Labour to have its dispute with the management of the Lamasa Limited referred to the Industrial Dispute Tribunal.
NWU President Vincent Morrison says the management has failed to settle outstanding payments to workers whose posts were made redundant.
Another batch of Lamasa workers will today join the employment line.
This time 140 employees are being made redundant.
The workers are being sent home as Lamasa’s contract to provide support services to the Bustamante Hospital for Children ends today.
Morrison says attempts have been made by the union to get the matter settled but to no avail.
He says this has left workers frustrated and disappointed.
Last December 400 workers were sent home by Lamasa.
Since then, the former employees have been pressing the company’s management to pay them their outstanding sums but the issue remains unresolved.
