Unions to PM: Don’t shut down Petrotrin refinery


    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.
