President General of the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union, Ancel Roget has rejected Petrotrin’s package sent by the Company’s Benefits Department.
According to a media release, the package was sent on Thursday while Mr Roget was in the witness box being cross-examined in court on the Company’s decision to retrench workers and close its doors.
This was immediately rejected and the Company’s Courier who brought the package was sent back with it.
The release stated that this is another example of the Company’s gross disrespect and disregard for the law, even as the matter is being heard at the Industrial Court.
The OWTU said that there was a similar approach taken when the Injunction was coming up for hearing at the Benefits Department.
It noted at that time the Company sent a termination notice to the office of OWTU for Comrade Roget, it was also rejected and immediately forwarded to the Union’s Attorneys as evidence in the ongoing matter.
