All unions called for support oil refinery contract workers

Kenneth-Valpoort-HorecafWILLEMSTAD – The leader of the trade union Horecaf, Kenneth Valpoort called on all the unions in Curaçao for a meeting to support the SGTK, which represents the contract workers at the oil refinery.

“We want to show with this meeting that we support the SGTK. We also want to put pressure on the contractor association AAV to find a solution as soon as possible. This conflict has been going on too long and the unrest among the people is great,” said Valpoort.

All the unions that have shown their support towards the SGTK and its employees are the education trade union Sitek, civil servants union ABVO, the UGTK/Cadmu, oil sector union PWFC, Apri (oil refinery personnel), the union for staff in the care sector CBV and Horecaf.

Valpoort calls on all other unions that did not show their support yet to do so.

“Once again we hope for a speedy resolution of the conflict,” said Valpoort.
