NE­GO­TI­A­TIONS BE­TWEEN NIC AND NWU HAVE BRO­KEN DOWN

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween the Man­age­ment of Na­tional In­surance Cor­po­ra­tion (NIC) and Na­tional Work­ers Union (NWU), which com­menced months ago, broke down Thurs­day, Novem­ber 20, 2014 at the Na­tional Work­ers Union of­fice.

The NWU del­e­ga­tion said that Mr. Vic­tor Poy­otte, who is lead­ing the talks on be­half of the Na­tional In­surance Cor­po­ra­tion, walked out from the meet­ing. The talks are aimed at ar­riv­ing at a new in­dus­trial agree­ment on be­half of the NIC em­ploy­ees.

The Na­tional Work­ers Union views Mr. Poy­otte’s ac­tion as be­ing dis­re­spect­ful and one that could lead to a head-on clash be­tween the Na­tional Work­ers Union and the Na­tional In­surance Cor­po­ra­tion.

A meet­ing will be held for the NIC em­ploy­ees next week to de­ter­mine the way for­ward.
