Cepep is vehemently denying that it is aggressively terminating contracts with no care for the personal lives of the employees nor the impact it would have in cleaning water courses during the wet season.
This comes after the issues were raised by Opposition MP, Dr Roodal Moonilal. In a two-page ad, the company said it is returning to its original mandate.
Which is to provide short-term employment for contractors and its employees for a maximum period of three years so that they can then go into the private sector with the proper know how.
Former Housing Minister Dr. Roodal Moonilal is condemning what he termed the "arbitrary" dismissal of CEPEP contractors and almost 12,000 workers.
Dr Moonilal issued the following statement on the topic.
"I strongly condemn the planned move to arbitrarily dismiss contractors and almost 12,000 workers of The Cepep Company Limited.
The publicly-advertised plan would displace several contractors who have invested in equipment and are the employers of thousands of dedicated working class citizens.
