Union against C&W control of TSTT

Communications Workers Union (CWU) says it will oppose moves by the British telecommunications company, Cable and Wireless (C&W), to seek majority control of State-owned Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT).
CWU president Joseph Remy said that Cable and Wireless had written to Finance Minister Larry Howai promising a number of projects which the telecommunications company would be prepared to undertake to the benefit of the people of T&T.
But Remy told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) that his union would not support moves by C&W to seek to regain controlling shares in the local telecommunications company.
In an April 24 letter sent to Howai by Cable and Wireless chief executive Phil Bentley ahead of a planned April 30 meeting, the British telecommunications company said “we have identified specific projects which we are confident can be substantially advanced within 6-12 months to demonstrate significant progress and benefits to the people of Trinidad and Tobago”.
