The National Workers Union has reacted to news of a looming strike by LIME employers in Antigua.

The workers at telecommunications giant are threatening industrial action later this month amidst fears they will be left jobless when the US$1.85 billion merger with Columbus International is completed.

President General at the NWU Tyrone Maynard says the situation is one that should concern all workers in the region.

He stressed that workers must not be made to suffer the impact of what he believes was a bad decision made by Lime several years ago to replace the services of in-house staff with outsourced contractors.

The Union official has also called out the Minister for Labour for failing to ensure that workers are protected from the decisions made by such large companies after setting up shop here.

The employees have accused the management of side-lining them in favour of workers at FLOW. However, Acting General Manager of LIME Joshua Stewart has denied the allegations saying the concerns expressed by workers are premature
