The Trinidad & Tobago National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited (NP) notes the Court of Appeal’s majority decision to dismiss the Company’s appeal against the judgement of the Industrial Court with respect to the 68 workers whose services were terminated on October 21st 2013.
In light of the Court’s decision, NP now sets for itself two interrelated responsibilities: reconciliation and reintegration. In spearheading the Return-to-Work programme for the workers, a detailed programme has been developed in conjunction with a number of key stakeholders that will ensure the successful reintegration of the dismissed employees while also attending to the needs of the existing employees.
NP stands committed to the fulfilment of its primary objective of providing an uninterrupted fuel supply to its valued customers and to this end, remains focused on ensuring that its operations are conducted with minimal disruption.
With trust, integrity, professionalism and passion forming the Company’s positive core values, NP will continue to evaluate its performance, embracing and encouraging these ideals through continued debate, dialogue and negotiations.
As part of its overriding commitment to building the nation and improving the quality of life for its citizens, NP’s focus remains the use of its collective strengths to ensure the timely delivery of fuel to our service station network; airports in Trinidad and Tobago; industrial customers including the Port Authority; all hospitals; and all of the protective services.
