by | Jul 29, 2014

CWU President, Joseph RemyPlans by the Telecommunication Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) to retrench 25 percent of its workers have been met with indignation by the Communication Workers Union (CWU).

The Union claims that political motivation inspired the move and has accused the company of nepotism and political interference.

According to the Union the company plans to get rid of 200 employees from their staff including executives, managers and policing staff.

It said that the company’s reason for doing this is to reduce wage bill by about 40 to 50 percent.

President of the Communication Workers Union Joseph Remy stated that the company communicated that it had to take a $1.5 billion loan in which 50 percent would go toward the Voluntary Separation and Early Enhanced Retirement Plan.
