Several unions are urging Government to rescind the decision to shut down the Petrotrin refinery.
This morning, the Joint Trade Union Movement held a media conference which included members of numerous unions.
The consensus, according to Communication Workers Union Secretary General, Clyde Elder, is that the decision is a bad one.
Meanwhile, BIGWU General Secretary, Trevor Johnson, warns that the issue is bigger than the 2,500 jobs to be terminated.
