Oran workers protest job conditions
Workers at Oran Limited downed their tools this morning around 9 o’clock, saying they could no longer tolerate the ‘unsanitary and unsafe’ environment in which they work.
When a Nation team arrived, more than 50 general workers in the production department were huddled together talking amongst themselves.
They said there was a rodent infestation and the flooring where they worked was dangerous, as were some of the chemicals they were being asked to use to make window frames and doors.
Representatives from the Barbados Workers Union and Oran management are currently doing a walkthrough of the building at Harbour Road, St Michael with workers from Pilot pest control company. (SB)
