All is not well at the government-owned Mt. Hartman Quarry that is currently under the control of the Kuwaiti-operated company known as CCC International.
Well-placed sources told THE NEW TODAY that the workers are not unionised and would like the Keith Mitchell-led New National Party (NNP) government to meet with them to hear some of their grievances.
According to one worker who spoke to this newspaper on the grounds that he was not identified, the employees are hearing that CCC is pulling out of Grenada and that a new outfit will be taking over the operations at the quarry.
He said that very little information is being given to workers but they were given documents to sign new contracts of employment with a different company.
The worker described the contract as amounting to “a return to the days of slavery” and would like government to intervene on their behalf since the quarry is the property of the state.
He also said that the workers were summoned to a meeting about three weeks ago by management and it ended abruptly without any information being given to employees on the way forward.
As a public service, THE NEW TODAY reproduces a part of the contract that was put before the workers:
