Union rejects Tower Hotel proposal over pay
The Clerical and Commercial Workers Union (CCWU) yesterday rejected a proposal from part-owner of the Tower Hotel, businessman Salim Azeez that workers return to their jobs until he is able to pay them because he is in a financial crisis.
“We had a meeting today with the hotel owner, Salim Azeez where he gave us a sad story asking that the workers resume work until who knows because the bank was coming down on him for foreclosure and this and that …we rejected it. Pay off all old debts and then we discuss (anything else),” President of the CCWU, Sherwood Clarke told Stabroek News yesterday. Efforts by Stabroek News yesterday to contact Azeez for comment failed.
