NUPW pressing NCC for hearing


Share post:

COMPLAINING THAT there were no “justifiable reasons” for delaying the hearing of the National Conservation Commission’s (NCC) wrongful dismissal case, the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has warned that the Employment Rights Tribunal may get hit with an ultimatum.

​NUPW general secretary Denis Clarke said yesterday that consideration was being given to setting a deadline for the tribunal to “get kicking” – or else.

He declined to say what time frame was being considered for the tribunal to get down to business or complete the hearing as well as what protest action the union would launch if its call was ignored.

“In the fullness of time, you will hear how we plan to approach it,” he told reporters during a media briefing at NUPW headquarters in Dalkeith, St Michael, yesterday.

Clarke complained that the case sent to the tribunal after nearly 200 NCC workers were retrenched had been at a standstill for months.
