Employees take UTS to court

CourtWILLEMSTAD - A group of employees of the United Telecommunication Services (UTS) has taken the company to court. This is a conflict between the management and employees of the department Billings & Collections.

Vice President of the union Sitcom Marlon Dompig was not able to give much information about this conflict between the two parties. The union official indicated that he has heard three different versions of what the reasons are for the conflict. He also said that the union leaders will meet with the employees to find out what the actual reason is.

“It is remarkable to me that the employees did not ask the union to resolve this issue for them. Instead, they went directly to the court,” said Dompig during an interview.

Morning newspaper Extra reported that the labor dispute has to do with a commission received by the employees of the department for the collection of overdue accounts. Apparently the management, in their efforts to put the company's financial situation in order, wants to put an end to this 'very' lucrative arrangement. According to the employees of said department, they will not accept this.

This is not the first time the management has tried to put an end to this arrangement. During one of these attempts, a Minister stepped in because he is related to one of the employees.

UTS is continuously trying to cut into its expenses, but the company is not having the easiest time doing this.

Efforts on our part to find out why the employees did not request assistance from the union did not give any result.
