Guyana: Blairmont sugar workers picket for pay increase

A large number of factory and field workers attached to the Blairmont Estate downed tools yesterday morning to call for a pay increase.

The workers held a picketing exercise outside the estate’s administrative office as they demanded an immediate 15 per cent pay increase.

The Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) in a press statement yesterday said, “The workers are seeking for the Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc. (GuySuCo) to bring an end to its procrastination in the consideration of their call for a 15 per cent pay increase.
