Carib Cement workers to resume work following protest
Protesting workers at Carib Cement's Rockfort Plant in Kingston are to return to work tonight (April 3).
This after an agreement was reached at a meeting with Labour Ministry officials, union representatives and the company's management, this afternoon.
The National Workers' Union (NWU), which represents the workers, is seeking among other things, an adjustment in wages for the period July 2010 to June 2012.
It says the workers have not received an increase in 4 years.
NWU Vice President, Granville Valentine, says following today's meeting, the workers are to return to work at 10:00 p.m. and negotiations are to continue at the Ministry tomorrow.
