Carib Cement workers in limbo

(Jamaica Gleaner) Workers at Caribbean Cement remain off the job this afternoon as discussions continue at the labour ministry over an industrial dispute.

Some 200 employees are on work-to-rule to protest the board’s decision not to sanction a wage offer from the management.

The talks are being held between the National Workers Union (NWU) and the management of Carib Cement.

According to NWU Vice President Granville Valentine, the Board’s action comes after the union and the management of Carib cement had reached an agreement following prolonged negotiations.
