Oilbelt Services Limited

33 sent home from Oilbelt Services Limited & Trinity Exploration

Nineteen men, all unionised employees of Oilbelt Services Limited with in excess of ten years’ service each, stood with letters of redundancy in their hands yesterday evening, contemplating how they were going to break the news to their families.

Daniel Hernandez, a gathering station attendant for the past 14 years with the Grand Ravine company, a subsidiary of Trinity Exploration and Production, said the time frame in which they were told of plans to separate them was so short they did not have time to think, much less plan ahead.
