Go, Sir!

THE SAGA involving the Transport Board and United Commercial Autoworks Limited (UCAL) took a new twist yesterday when some UCAL workers called for the removal of chairman Sir Roy Trotman.

Sources told the DAILY NATION that up to yesterday, a petition had collected over 40 signatures seeking the appointment of a new chairman of the vehicle repair company.

The new development followed the second day of strike action by UCAL workers who also pledged yesterday not to work on any Transport Board buses until they had received a written document from the state-run Government agency honouring an agreement reached with Minister of Transport Michael Lashley last September 26.

“We don’t want nothing word of mout’,” UCAL’s shift foreman and director Richard Newton told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
