AquaGib strike suspended

Action has been suspended by AquaGib workers who have also indicated their willingness to sit down with management and establish negotiations. That follows a meeting of union members yesterday.

The TGWU said that the statement issued by the company on the dispute has created great discontent amongst the workforce and came close to enforcing a decision to take industrial action yesterday. However, with an assurance from management that they will have a reply by next Friday, the TGWU agreed a suspension of action for a week.

The AquaGib staff are seeking that differentials with their Government counterparts be sustained at the levels they were when the workers left Government employment and joined Lyonnaise des Eaux which later became Aquagib.
