The new term of the Industrial Court (IC) is expected to be opened today by its President Deborah Thomas-Felix.
The court’s opening scheduled to take place from 10 am at its location on St Vincent Street.
Last term’s highlight was the state’s case against the Public Services Association (PSA), its President Watson Duke and Immigration Officer Purdy Babwah.
Mr. Duke and his co-accused were brought before the court by the state which claimed they allegedly breached an order by the IC preventing immigration workers from taking protest action.
On July 31st the court ruled that all three had a case to be answered regarding contempt of court proceedings filed against them by Labour Minister, Errol McLeod.
All three are expected to bring witness to testify in their defense when the trial resumes in October.
