Port workers return to work, strike called off

CANA Online, 30 August 2000

St. George's, Grenada, CANA - A full-blown strike at Grenada's main sea port in St. George's ended Tuesday afternoon when more than 50 workers returned to their jobs satisfied that their demands had been met. A dismissal letter to port employee Ian Maxwell was put on hold as part of an agreement between the management of the port authority and union officials. Port Management says Maxwell a coxswain for the past seven years was dismissed because of a poor attendance record but his co-workers affiliated to the militant Technical and Allied Workers Union (TAWU) view his sacking as insensitive.
