VIDEO: Roget tells BpTT, "Take your platform and go"

OWTU president Ancel Roget says the decision by BpTT to not construct its Angelin platform here is because he believes the company could not get its way with workers.

Labour issues have been partially blamed for the delays that forced BpTT to construct the platform in the US instead.

Roget says the union is not relenting on its decision to protest when the union believes it is acting in the best interest of the workers.
