OAS Construtora, the main contractor in the construction of the $7.5 billion Solomon Hochoy Highway extension to Point Fortin, is feared to be packing up and leaving this country. This according to workers who yesterday protested outside the gates of the job site in Golconda.
Employees say their salaries are overdue and with no feedback from NIDCO – the National Infrastructure Development Company that OAS has received all monies owed, workers are now clamoring for answers as to when they will be paid.
Sean Dyer, another employee attached to the contract called on government to ensure that this does not happen again.
Meanwhile, Mohammed Hussein reiterated that workers were assured that they would have been paid.
A meeting with works minister, Fitzgerald Hinds is expected to take place, however a date is yet to be obtained by workers. News Power Now learnt that a meeting is currently taking place among OWTU members with an aim to filing an injunction against OAS Constructura, in the interim.
