ANOTHER DISPUTE seems to be brewing between the Transport Board and its mechanical partner, the United Commercial Autoworks Limited (UCAL).

Reliable sources have revealed that not only has UCAL not received any monthly payments for the year, which breaches a previous agreement, but concerns have been raised about the recent importation of three Trinidadian engineers who have set up shop at the Transport Board’s Mangrove depot in St Philip and are reportedly repairing a number of buses.

Reports were that UCAL was directed to transport 14 buses to the Mangrove mechanical workshop to be assigned to the Trinidadians.

“We have not seen anything advertised for issuance of work permits or anything like that for non-nationals to be working on our local buses,” a spokesman, who requested anonymity, said yesterday.

Please read the full story in today’s Daily Nation, or in the eNATION edition.
