Tower Hotel workers still in the dark
The Tower Hotel saga continued yesterday with workers turning up to be paid outstanding amounts only to find a desolate building still without power and no one in authority present.
“The workers went there today and none of the directors were there the place was still without lights and now I don’t know, they will return tomorrow and every day until someone says something,” President of the Clerical and Commercial Workers Union, Sherwood Clarke said yesterday.
CCWU is the union representing 90% of the Tower Hotel workers.
On Monday, some workers returned to work after an agreement was reached the Friday before, between the hotel’s directors and the union.
Then, they were given two options that is to take a severance package and give management one month to pay it off or Tower Hotel pays off all back wages and salaries and workers resume work. Twenty-one took the latter option while 24 took the former.
