Petrotrin retirees to protest Wednesday

Retirees of Petrotrin are planning to protest outside of the now-defunct company's refinery on Wednesday.

A statement from the Oilfield Workers Trade Union (OWTU) says the retirees intend to stage the protest due to what they deem the government's failure to pay retroactive pension and increase for period 2011-2014 and 2014-2017 as mandated by the court. 

Petrotrin was shut down in November 2018 and replaced by three companies - Heritage Petroleum Company, Paria Fuel Trading Company and Guaracara Refining Company.
