Hotel Tower reneges on promised wages to laid-off workers – union
Hotel Tower has reneged on its promise to pay off workers their salaries and benefits and now says its first obligation is discharging debts.
As a result, workers will have to wait a longer period for payments.
Workers’ union representative Sherwood Clarke told Stabroek News yesterday that during a meeting with hotel owner Salim Azeez and his attorney, Marcel Bobb, the workers were told that the hotel’s first obligation was to the bank, the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) and the Guyana Power and Light Inc (GPL).
However he stated that the workers became enraged as they felt they were being wronged.
“The workers get vexed and there was a breakdown in the meeting, the workers did not take that news well,” he said.
