Court hearing looms but union open to settlement in employees’ favour

The union representing the 13 workers of telecommunications company LIME, who have been made redundant as a result of its merger with FLOW, said it is willing to accept a last minute settlement ahead of this week’s trial in the Industrial Court.

Deputy General Secretary of the Antigua & Barbuda Workers Union (ABWU) Chester Hughes said the union is still willing to continue talks with FLOW.

“Even up until Tuesday morning we can meet at the court and come to an agreement that the employees will be satisfied with and just get a consent order from the court. It is just for both parties to come to a settlement; they feel strongly about what they are doing and we feel strong about it also,” Hughes said.

The case, involving the workers who were severed as of November 30, 2015, will be heard on Tuesday and Thursday of this week.
