UNILEVER Retrenches / 600 To Go at UNIPET

Postby bluefete » December 4th, 2019, 5:52 pm

Unilever retrenched staff this afternoon (still to get the total figures).

At Unilever, the Latin American managers have a problem that the TT factory workers are well paid. They are also fedup of dealing with the OWTU.

Unipet announced that 600 staff will go home.

More to come.

That 34 million from life sport, 1 billion from a failed waste water treatment plant build by hand picked financiers and 6 million paid to wreck a fire truck would have helped ease the burden of these workers; but who cares friends and family had to get rich under Kams and the PP at any cost net Zoom

UNILEVER is a multinational. they are in Trinidad to make profits that will be sent overseas to their head office. The head office does not want TT$, it is like garbage to them. The head office would rather be paid upfront - in US$ - than deal with manufacturing, currency and economic deficiency in Trinidad.

This is evidence of our status. A few more years of this PNM economic policy and we will become Venezuela.

Yeah. Terrible things.

That's why they were voted out.

PNM repeating.

Time to vote them out?

Np just had a huge million dollar lawsuit payout and they are not profitable. Unipet continues to make them unprofitable so remove Unipet from the equation and voila, all available goes to Np. There is also the question about the evaporative charge that Np is excused from that Paria is pushing on Unipet to pay when this originates at Paria. Clearly someone wants Unipet to shutdown it's operations.

Sufferer here. Left them out years ago because their products are relatively expensive. The quality is good eh, just not worth the premium IMO...:|

The FACTS are that Trinidad is not a profitable place to manufacture again, costs have gone up over the years , you have terrible access to foreign exchange, labour in Trinidad is Very unproductive and inefficient.

What else did you all expect to happen?

This, it's our due to a combination of high labour costs (also blame our over valued currency) and very unproductive workforce.

Blaming workers is always the easiest way to divert blame from management's own failures since workers have no one to defend them. The business sector has been doing that for decades. That's why they were pushing for workers from caricom, then they was pushing for illegal Venezuelan workers. Who next they go be pushing for slaves? After they replace everybody with robots, who would they blame again?

The way some people does talk here, workers should be working for minimum wage for the rest of their lives with no benefits, while the suits at the top continue to make their millions.
No wonder we have so much self hate in this country.
