A release from the National Workers Union says the Unionworkers are horrified that a long serving member of staff (26 years of continuious service) was suspended without pay since December 2017 because he indicated to management that he is a Seventh Day Adventist and is not available to work on a Saturday.
This comes on the heels of a Notice for the Withdrawal of Labour issued to the company in June 2018 by the National Workers Union.
The Notice sighted issues relating to unwarranted suspensions, redundancies, unjustifiable dismissals, undignified treatment of staff, the company's reluctance to improve wage and Fringe Benefits collectively.
The breaches has been referred to the Ministry of Labour for conciliation but the Union also intends to lobby the support of the PSOJ, JEF and the Jamaica Union of Seventh Day Adventist.
