Despite its militant stance against the actions of Pan Caribbean Sugar towards 132 security guards, the University and Allied Workers Union (UAWU) is preparing a proposal to discuss with the company. The parties will be meeting at the Ministry of Labour on Monday, where the union intends to make a submission. The security guards were laid off Thursday and this has sparked a second dispute between the company and the union. Clifton Grant, UAWU First Vice President, explained that the union is not opposed to some form of settlement. Pan Caribbean Sugar had stated that the decision to send home the workers resulted from security breaches at its Bernard Lodge, Monymusk and Frome sugar factories.
