Published: 13 August 2007

Workers at the Arawak Cement Company now have a paternity leave clause and an economic value added (EVA) bonus scheme. The initiatives are part of an improved agreement between monthly workers and management at Arawak Cement Company.


Satnarine Bachew, general manager of Arawak Cement, was part of the company’s team which signed the three-year collective agreement with the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) recently and stated that after months of negotiations, it was a pleasure to reach this stage.


"This settlement is a win/win situation for everyone involved. I congratulate the teams from Arawak Cement and the NUPW for taking all the factors into consideration and reaching a mutually beneficial agreement.
