OWTU to lead former Petrotrin workers in protest


    After publicizing their dissatisfaction with the acquisition process for the Pointe-a-Pierre refinery, the OWTU will tomorrow lead former Petrotrin workers in a protest at three locations.

    The union says the action will be held in groups of 10, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines.

    They are planning to stage their protest outside of the offices of the Ministries of National Security and Energy, as well as the Office of the Prime Minister.

    On Wednesday, OWTU leader Ancel Roget lamented the length of time it is taking for the Government to sign the deal to hand over the refinery to Patriotic Energies Ltd.

    The company, owned by the union, was chosen as the preferred bidder in the acquisition process but to date an agreement has not been formally signed to give them control of the refinery assets.
