Jamaica: Unions return to bargaining table to settle Moneymusk dispute

Trade unions and the management of the Moneymusk Sugar Factory in Clarendon will return to the bargaining table Wednesday after Tuesday’s talks ended in deadlock.

Representatives of the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU), the National Workers Union (NWU) and the University and Allied Workers Union (UAWU), met with the management of the sugar factory for six hours Tuesday but failed to find common ground.
Speaking with the RJR News Centre after the meeting, first Vice President of the UAWU, Clifton Grant, admitted that the talks failed to produce any tangible agreement.
Monday tractor and transportation workers at the sugar factory walked off the job after the company instituted a controversial three day work week schedule.
