Members of the bauxite union petitioned the Trade Union Recognition Board

Dear Editor,

Further to your subject article published in your daily of March 9, captioned ‘Union wins key battle at RUSAL –derecognition denied’, please be informed that it was 131 members of the bargaining unit (employees of Bauxite Company Guyana Inc and members of the Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union (GB&GWU)), who petitioned the Trade Union Recognition and Certification Board in December 2009 for the derecognition of GB&GWU.

It was not BCGI or RUSAL as you appear to indicate in your headlines and articles.

Please also be informed that we, the petitioners, would be seeking to have the Board review their decision as it appears that a proper and complete survey was not conducted by officers of the Ministry of Labour assigned to carry out this task.

Yours faithfully,
Linden Prince
Petitioner

Editor’s note
There is nothing in the headline or the report of March 9 to suggest that BCGI or RUSAL had petitioned the Trade Union Recognition and Certification Board for derecognition of the GB&GWU.
