-Say it is time two-decades old issue settledMore than 40 workers of the Guyana Telecommunications Corporations (GTC) are calling on Government to settle a long overdue issue of pension and gratuity dating back since the early 90?s, when that state-owned company was divested.Harold Shepherd, President of the GP&TWU,Wholesale Football Jerseys, (second right) and other former Telecoms officials.During a press conference yesterday, the Guyana Postal and Telecommunications Workers Union (GP&TWU) also disclosed that it has written President Bharrat Jagdeo and the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) on the matter a number of times but there has been no reply.GP&TWU President, Harold Shepherd, explained that in 1990, the Guyana Government privatized GTC with US-based Atlantic Tele-Networks (ATN) collaborating with Government to form the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T).GTC staffers were given letters offering them the possibility of working with the new GT&T.However, the problem was that GT&T decided that workers reaching pensionable age would only be assessed for the period after 1991 while prior to this would have to be paid by the Ministry of Finance.Shepherd noted that quite a number of workers, some of them senior managers, ended up receiving the minimum pension,Cheap NFL Jerseys, as low as $16,000 monthly.Another spokesman for the workers and a former GTC Industrial Relations manager, Clifford Blackett,Cheap Jerseys Wholesale, was one of casualties. He estimates that workers should really be collecting around $50,000 monthly, according to calculations based on years of experience and positions.A number of the 40-odd GTC workers who said that two decades have passed without their correct pension and gratuity being paid.There had been several attempts to broker an agreement with a draft Memorandum of Agreement in 2004 not meeting with the union?s approval. The matter has been hanging until this year when GP&TWU in March wrote the President to meet on the issue.Letters were also sent to NICIL?s Winston Brassington and Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon.There was no response and two more letters have since been dispatched.According to Blackett, when GTC had given workers letters in 1990,Cheap China Jerseys, none of them envisaged that their years of service would not be recognized when it came to the payments of gratuities and pensions.The current pensions being paid to former managers are what cleaners and others at the bottom of the ladder are getting, Brackett said.The 10-odd workers, at the press conference at GP&TWU?s headquarters at East Street,NFL Jerseys Cheap, noted that GT&T had taken over GTC with more than $500M in 1991 and it was unreasonable to think some of the monies should have been utilized to pay the workers their dues.According to Shepherd, the union has not ruled out protest actions, among other things,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, to press home their demands.
