Strike threat a diversion

Wednesday, January 11 2017

The Editor: Add one more feature to the many things T&T is; The land of theatrics! Neither the government nor the OWTU has fooled anyone by their silly antics and posturings.

It pains me to think that this government has the audacity to attempt to pull wool over the general populationís eyes.

That episode with the OWTU has to be the biggest sham in recent times. It was a cleverly orchestrated diversion from the everyday ills that beset the society.Murders, lack of foreign exchange, FATCA et al no longer hugged the headlines.It was all Roget and Colm. The dynamic duo! But, alas any sensible Trini would have read the signs. We go into panic buying very easily,but on this one occasion there were no long lines at the pumps. So, Colm and Roget, I nominate for a special Oscar.Take five Roget! To Rogetís credit,he has identified some important facts that should be noted and acted upon. Square pegs in round holes, political patronage, gross mismanagement and hefty payments to so called technocrats at the Company. I also agree with the suggestion by one of the opposition members-allow the workers to become shareholders. In that way the workers have vested interest.

Also I believe that structures should be established to keep the refinery running should a genuine strike be called.I know it was publicised that the Company had a plan in place but maybe they can improve on that.Remember hindsight is 20/20 vision.
