Another protest over conditions at Edinburgh Government Primary

Parents and teachers of the Edinburgh Government Primary School are expected to stage a protest in-front of the school, today, with support from the Oilfields Workers Trade Union.

OWTU: “Injunction against Refinery deal was political…”

THE Oilfields Workers Trade Union (OWTU) is calling the injunction to block the sale of the Petrotrin Refinery a political move.

This after the United National Congress (UNC) distanced itself from any legal action with respect to the sale of the refinery.

Education and Research Officer of the OWTU, Ozzie Warwick, told Guardian Media that members of the UNC—namely Oropouche East MP, Dr Roodal Moonilal—lied on the union in the Parliament.

He says they are taking that very seriously.
