31 retrenched from Guardian Media: a sham, says union *

Tears flowed at the Guardian Media Ltd (GML) office in Chaguanas yesterday, as 31 employees from various departments were served retrenchment notices.

GML, a subsidiary of the ANSA McAL Group, publishes the Guardian newspaper and operates CNC3 Television, the TBC Radio Network and the Big Board Company.

This is the company's second retrenchment in less than a year.

In a statement yesterday, GML said the latest retrenchment came following a consultation process which started on May 3 with the Banking, Insurance and General Workers Union (BIGWU).
