Trotman, Broomes rush to aid of distressed RUSAL workers

first_imgThe coalition Government has established a task force to ensure workers of the Bauxite Company of Guyana Incorporated (BCGI) are not adversely affected by recent sanctions affecting parent company Russia Aluminum (Rusal).Minister Raphael Trotman addressing Rusal workersNatural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman on Wednesday visited Rusal (Guyana operations), located in Kwakwani, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) to deliver the assurances first-hand to workers. Rusal Guyana is a majority shareholder in BCGI and a subsidiary of Rusal.“We are here to assure you that we are not going to see your jobs just go aside. We are going to be fighting,” Minister Trotman told workers. He announced that a task force headed by Minister within the Natural Resources Ministry, Simona Broomes, will be leading this effort.A proposal was made to Cabinet on Tuesday to establish the task force which would address the “crisis that could come” and address general company workers’ relations.Last week, the United States Treasury Department announced sanctions against Rusal which would effectively ban the company from conducting business in American currency. The sanctions were to take effect in June but this week the Treasury Department announced it is pushing back the deadline to October 23, 2018, to give American companies time to wind down business with Rusal.The task force is a cautionary measure and includes Finance Minister Winston Jordan, Members of Parliament Jermaine Figueira and Audwin Rutherford, General Secretary of the Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union (GBGWU) Lincoln Lewis, and the Department of Labour.“Rusal, the company, the management and its workers have to find a way to work together to save this industry. The Government of Guyana has a duty to stand and work with you to save your jobs,” Minister Trotman said.Minister Broomes also gave assurances to workers that the task force will work in their best interest. “Just know the reason for the task force is not to sit down and take information but to come up with solutions,” Minister Broomes said.GBGWU’s General Secretary, Lewis, echoed the Minister’s sentiments and called for collaboration between workers and the company to further the task force’s work. “It is for you to give the Government the mandate as to the way forward. The Government representatives … have made the point that the Government is not prepared to leave you in the wilderness but to stand with you,” he said.Managing Director of BCGI, Valerii Vinokurov, explained that the mining operations had halted operations following the announcement of the sanctions. Rusal Guyana will now resume work after being stalled for some 10 days. He added that contractor, Oldendorff Carriers, will also continue its work with the company.Additionally, BCGI is working with the Bank of Guyana to open accounts in Euro currency to continue operations, “I want to assure you there is nothing to be afraid of. Rusal company is not going anywhere, we will continue to work and produce here in Guyana,” Vinokurov assured through a translator.last_img read more

IT’S D-DAY! NOW WE MUST ALL BELIEVE!

first_imgThese three men won’t be found wanting at Croke Park today!It’s a small word but one which Jim McGuinness uses over and over again.BELIEVE!That’s what every man, woman and child in our county must do today as Donegal face Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park. If the bookies were to be believed, Michael Murphy and co would be better off staying on the team bus rather than even togging out.But, as they say in the advert, “up here it’s different.”For we know the work, the sacrifices, the commitment and the dedication this team have put in.We know what it’s like to be underdogs. We know what it’s like to live in isolation and to be the ‘forgotten county.’Today we have the chance to show the rest of the country once again that Donegal can win against all the odds.They laughed at us when we dared to dream back in 1992 and again in 2012.And when the ball is thrown in at 3.30pm, we can do it all again.More than 30,000 Donegal fans are set to descend on Croker today and we need our voices to be heard. We need to let Jim and the boys hear our belief and to let them know that we are 100% behind them.Forget Coppers. Forget The Hill. Forget Bernard Brogan. Forget they’re champions.One word can get us across the line and into the final – believe.See you all in The Diamond! IT’S D-DAY!
