NWU MEETS NIC

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Adel­e­ga­tion from the Na­tional In­surance Cor­po­ra­tion (NIC) headed by Mr. Joseph Alexan­der, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the St. Lu­cia Em­ploy­ers Fed­er­a­tion met with of­fi­cials from the Na­tional Work­ers Union (NWU) Mon­day De­cem­ber 8, 2014.

The par­ties met to un­der­take a ne­go­ti­at­ing au­dit and to de­ter­mine the way for­ward for ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween the Na­tional In­surance Cor­po­ra­tion and the Na­tional Work­ers Union.

Re­cently the work­ers re­sorted to an in­dus­trial sit-in to demon­strate their dis­gust with the snail’s pace of ne­go­ti­a­tions be­ing held be­tween the par­ties and the decision to walk out of the meet­ing by a mem­ber of the NIC del­e­ga­tion. The NWU felt that such ac­tion was dis­re­spect­ful of the process and should not be tol­er­ated.

Na­tional In­surance Cor­po­ra­tion work­ers at Vieux Fort, Castries, Soufriere and Rod­ney Bay have re­turned to their jobs, which gives the ne­go­ti­at­ing process a chance to en­gage.

The work­ers and lead­er­ship of the NWU also gave the as­sur­ance that noth­ing would be done to pre­vent Saint Lu­cians from get­ting their pen­sions and other ben­e­fits this month.
