The President General of the All Trinidad General Workers’ Trade Union has reiterated to the national community and persons interested in the UNC/Rienzi rental issue that to date the All Trinidad General Workers Trade Union has not had any official correspondence and/or communication from the UNC regarding this issue.
In a release sent this morning the Union stated that it wrote to the UNC since 2010 and subsequently after that, with regard to organising a long term lease and to date the UNC has never officially responded.
The realse revealed that the UNC continued to treat the Union, the land lord, with scant courtesy by its refusal to meet concerning this issue.
The Union claimed that it was ready to provide all documentation to this effect.
The Union also disclosed that by its silence and refusal to meet regarding this matter for over five years, the UNC implied that it was not interest in a long term lease and was quite content to be a month to month tenant.
The Union the release noted had decided that because of the refusal and/or failure of the UNC to meet the Union as the legitimate landlord, the Union was no longer prepared to issue a long term lease to the UNC, but a month to month one instead.
It went on to accuse the UNC has made many misleading statements in the media in order to play on the sympathy of an unsuspecting public and turn the issue into a political one rather than one of a land lord tenant relationship.
It is very ironic it said that UNC politicians will seek to accuse the President General of being political.
The Union also called on Ms. Khadijah Ameen to stay out of business she has no idea about, since while accusing the President General of being political, she failed to mention that she is the only person to have ever been handed the safest UNC seat, on a platter and went on to lose the seat and lose her deposit.
The release further stated that Mr. Rudranath Indarsingh who also accused the President General of being political must also say whether the Union was being political or not when it supported him in more ways than one, tangible and intangible in 2010 when he became a candidate for the UNC.
