GBN Workers’ Claim Unfounded
Workers at the Grenada Broadcasting Company have been cautioned not to take strike action. This warning came from the station’s parent company, One Caribbean Media (OCM).
A letter from the OCM’s Executive, Mr Gregory Camejo, has dismissed the recent protest action by the workers, calling it “inappropriate”.
The letter which was addressed to the Technical and Allied Workers Union (TAWU) which represents the workers, was in response to a strongly worded petition to OCM. The petition was signed by most of the GBN workers, and it contained a list of grievances experienced on the job. The workers also called for the dismissal of GBN General Manager, Odette Campbell.
The letter warned the workers of taking strike action during working hours and relates that there are efficient and meaningful ways to communicate dissatisfaction.
The staff of GBN accused Mrs Campbell of abusing her powers and also the workers, however, OCM’s response calls their claims unfounded. The workers expressed unhappiness with the reaction and are considering fresh industrial action
