It has been the norm for the Government of T&T, and no matter what political party is in power, to appoint members to the board of Caribbean Airlines who have no experience in aviation and, most importantly, have no experience in turning around distressed companies.

I believe one exception would have been the Arthur Lok Jack-led board and CEO...

It is common knowledge that Petrotrin is vastly overstaffed, some say as much as ten times what is required to run an operation of its size. Therefore, the company is well within its rights to offer to terminate “only” 25 per cent of its staff.

In spite of the machinations in the global marketplace by both OPEC and non-OPEC countries to cut oil production in an effort to stabilise price, it appears that the new normal in terms of oil price may settle at only about $60 per barrel in the short to medium term.

I wish to thank the various heads of department at the eastern area from WASA, Community activist Mr Rock, and the agents from the Call Center for assisting me in getting a water leak repaired and the repaving of a major hole on Ojoe Road, Sangre Grande that has caused distress both to drivers...

1) The OWTU is demanding minimum wage for the inland and offshore workers. Is the public (the shareholders of Petrotrin) aware of the minimum wage of Petrotrin? It is reported to be $66 an hour. That is what a janitor is said to receive.

On behalf of the Rajkumari Cultural Center for Indo-Caribbean Culture in New York City (RCC), I wish to extend our deepest condolences to the Yankarran family and Anand’s fans around the world.

I do not know how much outside (the OWTU) support this proposed strike action has from the general working class and from the general public as a whole.

Successive governments have failed to effectively deal with this scratch bomb scourge. They refuse to outlaw it probably because it will interfere with the earnings of some private enterprise.

Like so many concerned citizens, I am forced to once again direct attention to, and request meaningful action from the authorities in eliminating the nuisance being experienced by citizens through the fireworks menace.

Once again, the OWTU seeks to commandeer its pound of flesh from a decelerating and devastated economy, plunging price of oil/gas, escalating unemployment, gas shortage, billion-dollar debt-ridden Petrotrin the employer, dwindling forex life-line and a 92 per cent reduction in the Exchequer’s...

As we begin this new year I wish the people in authority and the general public would realise that they need to stop lamenting and pleading with criminals to stop crime and instead insist that the police enforce the laws and actually do the job for which they are being paid.

The OWTU is threatening to shut down Petrotrin from tomorrow. Is this a case of flexing one’s muscles? Why not before Christmas or New Year’s? Convenient time isn’t it? After all the holidays.

The WTI crude oil price is $53.72 USD.

BRENT crude oil is $56.13 USD.
