State owned oil company, Petrotrin has accepted an invitation by the Ministry of Labour to treat with an ongoing trade dispute concerning an extension of leave for union business for three employees, one of whom is Oilfield Workers Trade Union President, Ancel Roget.
In a media release issued this afternoon, Petrotrin explained that a maximum of two, two- year extensions of employee absence with pay can be granted, at the request of the union, however the company says normally not more than two (2) such extensions are granted, as laid out in the Company’s Collective Agreements.
Petrotrin officials this afternoon said the company has extended numerous invitations (both verbally and written) to the OWTU through its Industrial Relations Department, to meet and dialogue concerning the request. The company also noted that one of the three employees in question has since decided to return to work at Petrotrin- an option that has been made available to all three employees.
The oil company says it remains open to meet and treat with the OWTU in the interest of good Industrial relations practice.
