The Ministry of Labour has called a meeting for Tuesday afternoon to discuss a plan by LIME Jamaica to make 300 workers' positions redundant. Unions representing the employees and officials of the telecommunications company are expected at the meeting which is scheduled for 1:00 pm.
The unions on Tuesday wrote to the Ministry claiming that LIME was attempting to reduce its work force without consultation.
They accused the company of breaching a Memorandum of Understanding signed in August 2011 in which the workers gave up benefits such as vacation leave and overtime payments in order to prevent job losses.
The unions again stated that they cannot guarantee normality at LIME.
The job cuts are slated to begin in April.
