The National Workers Union is deeply concerned with what it calls the internal hemorrhaging of job losses which continue to occur without signs of abeyance.

In a statement issued by the Union, it expressed that it is extremely unfortunate that St. Lucia has failed to grasp timely opportunities to structure a plan aimed at job security and economic stabilization.

The Union’s Deputy President general Solace Mayers also noted that the organization cannot ignore the fact that most of the jobs lost have sustained workers over many years and were linked to the National Insurance Corporation, Inland Revenue Department, Financial Institutions, Water & Sewerage Authority, Cable & Wireless (Lime), St. Lucia Electricity Services, Credit Unions etc., and that this issue must be given urgent attention in the form of dialogue that would enable all sides to better understand their plights, and establish a cooperation Pact.

From a trade Union’s standpoint, Ms Mayers notes that the various organizations can make a valuable contribution to the consultations as they have hand son experience in dealing with issues that affect the workforce.
