NWU cannot guarantee normality at sugar company

Two more trade unions have served notice that normality cannot be guaranteed at three of Jamaica's main sugar factories as a dispute develops over the decision to send scores of security personnel on leave. A meeting on Tuesday with officials of Pan Caribbean Sugar Company which manages the Monymusk, Bernard Lodge and Frome factories, failed to settle the row.
On Monday, the National Workers' Union (NWU) had warned that trouble was brewing at the three plants. In addition, the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU) and the University and Allied Workers Union (UAWU) said employees would likely protest against the decision to send their colleagues home.
On Sunday, security personnel at the three sugar factories were sent on paid leave due to what Pan Caribbean said was a restructuring exercise. A private security firm has since been brought in.
Meanwhile, the UAWU has expressed alarm at the large number of jobs that have been cut by Pan Caribbean Sugar in recent months.
