Mabura timber workers down tools over poor water, power supply
Workers of the Demerara Timbers Limited (DTL) at Mabura downed tools yesterday calling for improved electricity and water.
The workers who fall under the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), took to the streets of the interior mining concession at Mabura Region 10 demanding that the government step in and resolve the many issues they are faced with in the employ of the Malaysian-owned timber company. Their main concerns are a lack of potable water and electricity supply.
The workers carried placards which read, “GAWU want non stop electricity, we need light; No sleeping in office and MU stores; No light No wuk; We need light we aint no jumbie we need light; GAWU need light for workers and we serious.”
