UWI/OWTU wage talks go into new year
Principal and Pro Vice Chancellor, of the St Augustine Campus of The University of the West Indies (UWI), Professor Clement Sankat has reported that a meeting on December 20, between the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union (OWTU), which represents members of the Administrative and Technical Services Staff (ATSS) and UWI management went cordially but still did not yield a settlement.
He expressed his “disappointment at being unable to settle the matter at this very special time of the year and before the start of the new semester in 2011.”
He reiterated the university’s ability to place any new, improved offer was contingent upon a directive or remit from the Government of T&T but that that had not occurred. He said despite what appears to be a deadlock in the negotiations with the OWTU at the present time, the campus would explore all available options, including further dialogue with the Government, with a view to achieving a settlement early in the new year.
