Electricity workers refuse work in Trinidad and Tobago

Two Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (TTEC) Customer Service Centres remained closed yesterday because most of the employees did not show up for work.

According to a press release issued by TTEC, Point Fortin and Couva Service Centres remained closed while Scarborough centre was manned by a small number of employees. Distribution areas were also affected by high absenteeism levels as most field workers did not report for work, stated the release.

“As a result,” the release stated, “we are operating with a limited number of crews which will be utilised to respond to emergency calls in the shortest possible time.”

The OWTU and TTEC are in salary negotiations and the workers absence comes as trade unions have demanded the settlement of wage talks before the General Election.
