Grenadian Prime Minister Appeals for Talks on Industrial Impasse


By the Caribbean Journal staff

Following an emergency stakeholders meeting hosted by Prime Minister Tillman Thomas this past weekend, Grenada is continuing to work to find a resolution to the ongoing industrial impasse at Grenada Breweries Limited.

Thomas has invited the chairman of the brewery, Andrew Sabga, and the President General of the Technical and Allied Workers Union, Sen. Chester Humphrey, to a meeting at his office Thursday for further talks.

“The objective of the meeting is to facilitate the return of the employees to work and to get both parties to continue the bargaining process,” Thomas said in a letter. “Both parties are requested to put further media appearances on hold as a demonstration of goodwill.”

The industrial impasse at GBL has continued for some time, despite an apparent end in December. The controversy came to a boil earlier last month when Humphrey was arrested by police.
