Labour Ministry Averts Industrial Action at JPS



The Ministry of Labour & Social Security this afternoon received reports that workers employed to the Jamaica Public Service company were restive following a breakdown in wage talks between the company and workers represented by the National Workers Union and the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union.

Following conciliation talks, the parties reached an agreement and normalcy has returned to the company.

The Hon. Karl Samuda has commended the parties on the maturity in handling the discussions that facilitated the settlement of the protracted negotiations.
