Port of Spain workers are now back on the job.

On Wednesday the employees engaged in protest action for a third time in two weeks.

They claim the demonstration stemmed from concerns raised about the process of wage negotiations.

Earlier this week representatives from the Seamen and Waterfront Workers Trade Union (S.W.W.T.U.) and Port Authority officials resumed wage negotiations.

It came after a conciliatory meeting was held between both sides at the Labour Ministry last week.

S.W.W.T.U. President, Michael Annisette, in a News Power Now interview this afternoon said the union is not in support of the wage proposal put forward by the Port Authority.

He admitted that any protest action by the workers will impact operations at the port.
