THE NATIONAL UNION of Public Workers (NUPW) is to launch a public march shortly aimed at getting a better deal for laid-off National Conservation Commission (NCC) workers.

The announcement was made by acting general secretary of the union Roslyn Smith during a meeting with about 30 retrenched NCC employees this morning at NUPW's headquarters in Dalkeith, St Michael.

nupw-meeting-with-nccSmith said the protest was to register the union’s concern about the slow movement towards a settlement of the charge of wrongful dismissal levelled against the NCC.

No date has been announced. (TY)
