Well that's sad , but the trend was set by the Rowlee goverment as a means to dump useless worker's.

Local employers are just following suit and using the make believe climate to get rid of workers.

Speaker of the House hubby and Christine Sahadeo (yes, she again) in the mix...:|

Lee: Espinet destroyed the country
Carla Bridglal

While the Opposition believes Government’s termination of Wilfred Espinet as chairman of Trinidad Petroleum and all its attendant boards is long overdue, the new appointees with their lack of experience still leave much to be considered.

“(Espinet) has destroyed the country with regards to shutting down Petrotrin and putting 5,000 people on the breadline,” UNC deputy political leader David Lee told Newsday in a phone call.

Government today announced Espinet would no longer be involved with any of the boards he had taken charge of during the transitional period following the closure of Petrotrin last November. Michael Quamina, an attorney who has represented the Prime Minister in personal matters, is the new chairman of Trinidad Petroleum Holdings Ltd and Heritage Petroleum Co Ltd. Newman George, husband of Speaker Brigid Annisette-George, is the new chairman of Paria Fuel Trading Co and Guaracara Refining Co Ltd.

“What we now see is a set of new players who have no experience in the energy industry and this doesn’t auger well to send any confidence in the sector,” Lee said.

Former Port Authority chairman, Christine Sahadeo, was also named as a board member. Lee noted the close personal relationships of the new appointees to the Government.

“What is the Government doing? They are further destabilising the sector.”

Asked where he thought the sector was heading, he said the country was treading treacherous waters of uncertainty and people had no confidence the government would be able to get them out of it.

Energy is the country’s biggest revenue earner and putting people with little to no experience to head boards like these give no confidence to the future of energy in TT, he said.

“When you are putting people with no experience, what are you telling citizens? It’s a plasters for new sores coming on. They will not last.”

He noted Government has also not convened the parliamentary committee on energy since February 2018 and so, these senior officials in state energy companies could not be called before to answer to the public.

“Before they destroy the energy sector more, we say they must call elections now.”

I understand that he disagreed with the directives of political directorate.

His release implied that as well.

Looks like a sheit decision coming.

Espinet seems to be strictly a dollars and cents kinda guy. Will make the harsh decisions if that means shutting down and sending home workers.

It's not new that Espinet wants to do the "right" thing from a business point of view but the cabinet blocks him as they think from a political point of view. His attempt to get rid of Paria together with the refinery was a glaring example.

He took licks from the opposition, union and the public. Some money making now so Espinet who will be remembered as the one who "killed" petrotrin got future endeavored and is time for the boys to eat ah food.

More like the string got taut and snapped because the puppet was not moving, similar to Terrence Farrell.

put who where???
Steups!

In NO country should anyone under criminal investigation or facing charges for corruption be allowed to hold ANY seat or have any position of Authority.

I guess the workers who were dismissed really have to swallow the concept that "fake oil is good to calm the nerves"
