The OWTU is calling on Labour Minister Stephen Mc Clashie to intervene in the ongoing matter with Yara International.
Speaking to the media today was Ernesto Kesar who says a letter was sent to the Ministry on December 21st, regarding the matter of retrenchment notices being issued to 15 workers of its bargaining unit.
That letter, he adds, following a failed attempt to resolve the matter with the company.
According to Mr Kesar, the Ministry has also failed to respond.
According to the union, the retrenchments were handed out on November 18th 2020, and will become effective after January 2nd 2021.
Mr Kesar spoke to reporters this morning in front of Yara’s plant in Savonetta.
