It was expected to be a relatively short meeting, but sources involved in the National Conservation Commission (NCC) dispute are now expecting protracted talks today.
The meeting commenced around 10:30 this morning at the Labour Department and, according to the National Union of Public Workers, would set the stage for the next step in the dispute over the dismissal of around 200 workers.
NUPW President Walter Maloney is adamant that there needs to be compromise on the part of the NCC management.
“We’re hoping that we could get the employer to move so that we can start the proper negotiation process. We have placed some things on the table based on some information they gave to us and we need to get that process started,” he said.
