The Union of Clerical, Adminstrative and Supervisory Employees (UCASE), which represents workers at Petrojam, has said it is outraged by the breaches which have been unearthed by the Auditor General at the state run oil refinery.
UCASE President Vincent Morrison said during conversations with some of the workers since the report was tabled in Parliament this week, they indicated that the situation could have been avoided.
Mr. Morrison said the Petrojam employees have occasionally expressed concern about operations at the entity, however, he noted that a lot of the breaches were out of their control.
He argued that the blame should be laid at the minister, who should have provided better oversight.
UCASE will be meeting shortly with the employees to discuss the findings of the report and make recommendations.
Mr. Morrison urged taxpayers of Jamaica not to allow the issue to pass without investigations being carried out.
"I support the call for a forensic audit and those who are responsible must go to jail," he asserted.
