[www.inewsguyana.com] – Employees of the Guyana Geology & Mines Commission (GGMC) protested, today, November 17 outside their Brickdam office, Georgetown, demanding a 35% increase in wages & salary.
The protest commenced earlier and saw all workers from the office except Managers taking to the street to make their demands known.
The employees were heard chanting: “Ah fed up of the samething ova and ova; no money, no work.”
More than likely, the workers will not return to work today, however, it is unclear if they will resume duties tomorrow. This will be based on the outcome of a meeting between Management and the Union.
iNews also understands that the issue is being addressed by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. [Tracey Khan – Drakes]
