Carib Cement employees to resume work
Published: 11 May 2009

Staff at the Caribbean Cement Company have been ordered to resume work this morning after the Industrial Dispute Tribunal (IDT) intervened in a labour disagreement.

Labour Minister Pearnel Charles told The Gleaner that the matter was brought before the IDT on Sunday after unions representing workers at the cement company failed to show up for meetings at the ministry.
Charles said union representatives had failed to honour his requests to attend a number of the meetings at his offices on North Street during the weekend.

"The Industrial Dispute Tribunal met on Sunday and made an order to the management and workers that the plant must be reopened at 6 a.m. Monday (11th May) and that all workers assigned to that shift are required to go to work," he said.
