History was made today as for the first time the Banker’s Insurance and General Workers Union successfully bargained for workers in the energy sector
…and they did so without the intervention of the Ministry of labour.
This was the comment made by the Union as they signed a collective agreement with Repsol E&P Trinidad and Tobago.
This from the President of the bankers Insurance and general Workers Union Vincent Cabrera..
…as he announced that a collective agreement was signed between Repol E&P Trinidad and Tobago Limited and the Union
Cabrera commended both sides saying great maturity was displayed around the negotiating table and in the end…both parties were satisfied
Cabrera underscored that the challenges offshore workers face must never be taken for granted
…..he then went into some of the details of the agreement which is effective from the 1st of June 2009 and will expire on the 31st of May 2012
