Trinidad: TSTT HANGS UP ON WORKERS-Execs among 554 sent home in past month

STATE telecoms company TSTT has retrenched 51 workers – just two weeks before Christmas and less than a month after chopping almost a third of its workforce, by sending home 503 employees.

Workers received letters of retrenchment yesterday with at least one worker given December 25 – Christmas Day – as the final day of employment.

In a release, the company added that, via an out-of-court settlement, 77 workers eligible for voluntary separation packages (VSEP) offered in 2014 were “facilitated” and allowed to resign. These employees were previously denied their request for separation as a result of an injunction lodged at the Industrial Court.
