Trade Unions to meet with PM tomorrow

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 - 12:15

The Trade Union Federations which include the Joint Trade Union Movement (JTUM), National Trade Union Centre (NATUC), and the Federation of Independent Trade Unions and NGO's (FITUN) says they received correspondence from the office of the Prime Minister agreeing to meet.

The unions requested a meeting with the PM following a march through the city on Friday, August 4th, 2017.

During the march, Ancel Roget issued an ultimatum to Rowley to meet with the unions within the next two weeks or else there would be heightened action.

 The Prime Minister responded by saying he wants labour leaders to acknowledge the reality and outcomes of T&T’s “straitened circumstances” and return to the tripartite approach enabled by the Government, rather than rely on “threats, bombast, finger pointing and insults.”

The meeting will be held tomorrow, August 24th.
