NAACIE workers suspend strike but no budging on pay demands
Ahead of a meeting at the Ministry of Labour this morning, the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE) on Wednesday morning called off a strike by its GuySuCo workers for a pay increase.
But according to General Secretary of NAACIE, Kenneth Joseph, “We will not let up on this… we believe that the company is looking for allies where there are lies.”
Joseph said that there will be no negotiations with GuySuCo until the ministry is met with to discuss the reason for the strike and a decision would be made as to what the next step will be. He further stated that during the meeting, the union will be looking to confirm whether a statement issued by the state-run GuySuCo is true.
