The dispute that led to industrial action by more than 2,000 National Water Commission (NWC) workers on Tuesday and resulted in water disruptions islandwide, remains “unsettled and unresolved”.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Security, in a brief statement late Tuesday, said the NWC and the five trade unions representing the workers have agreed to resume discussions on Wednesday at 10am at the ministry’s North Street, Kingston office.
The statement was released by the ministry after 10 hours of continued conciliatory negotiations Tuesday.
In Parliament Tuesday, Minister of Labour and Social Security Karl Samuda said water had been restored, in “great” part, and that talks would continue to resolve the issues that saw the workers walking off the job Tuesday morning.
He gave the update while responding to a question from Member of Parliament for St Catherine Southern, Fitz Jackson, on the motion for adjournment during Tuesday afternoon’s sitting of the House of Representatives.
However, some social media users are disputing the news of water restoration, calling for the areas to be identified that have water flowing again.
