Following a meeting on Friday among labor Minister Peter David, labor commissioner Cyrus Griffith, TAWU, and management and board of directors of the Grenada Ports Authority whereby the status quo at the St. George’s Port remained unchanged, several positives have arisen as of Monday.
It has been confirmed by sources within the Grenada Ports Authority that employees represented by Grenada Technical and Allied Workers Union have returned to normal operations as of midday on Monday.
President General of TAWU Senator Andre Lewis says following a successful meeting with workers on Friday night more positive news came out.
The outstanding issue surrounded an ongoing FIU investigation into irregularities in the Grenada Ports Authority internal audit where officers attached to the unit approached workers while on the job to accompany them to assist with investigations.
The union leader says the matter is now a work in progress as the board of directors has indicated to TAWU that a response will be forthcoming toward a finalized agreement.
The President General says it is the union’s expectation that there will not be a repeat of last week’s protest and there be a matter of urgency despite no precondition given to the GPA board.
