The People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) is calling on Barama Company Limited (BCL) to be fair in the re-employment process of those workers who were laid off during late last year. Executive Member Basil Williams made the assertion yesterday at the Party’s weekly media briefing.In October, last, BCL was forced to close its plywood factory at Land of Canaan,NFL Jerseys Cheap
, East Bank Demerara, due to a damaged boiler system. As a result, 274 workers were laid off. Several interventions were made by both BCL and the Government, and the company undertook to rehire local workers,NFL Jerseys From China
, when the boiler repairs were completed and the plywood plant re-opened, in a projected 12 months’ time.However, according to Williams, on April 6, last, BCL indicated that it aims to resume plywood operations to facilitate the local market by June this year. This was following the successful installation of a new five-ton boiler. Williams further pointed out that Barama announced that “come June, the former workers will have an opportunity to resume duties at the company.”It was noted by Williams that the General Secretary of the Guyana Labour Union,Wholesale China Jerseys
, Carvil Duncan,Cheap Jerseys From China Outlet
, also said that with BCL resuming production, many old workers can be “reintegrated in the system.”However,Cheap NFL Jerseys
, contrary to all this, Williams said, reports reaching the party suggest that Barama is discriminating against former workers who are 50 years and over by refusing to employ them, despite the assurances given by it and Mr. Duncan.“Barama ought to be advised against this type of behaviour and to create a level playing field in their employment process of the previously laid off workers, some of whom according to Mr. Duncan,Cheap Anaheim Ducks Hoodies
, have been with the Company over 10-15 years”.
