LUCELEC Responds To NWU Strike Action Notice


St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) confirms it received a copy of the notice from the National Workers Union to the Labour Minister dated October 18, 2023 advising of the intention of its Grade 4 to 9 employees who are members of the Union to carry out strike action from 8:00 a.m. on November 17.

LUCELEC maintains that it has taken all steps in accordance with the requirements of the Labour Act Cap.16.04 of the revised laws of Saint Lucia to resolve all known grievances raised by the Union.

These include the two cited in the notice of strike action, namely:

1. The failure of management of St. Lucia Electricity Services Ltd (LUCELEC) to bring to speedy resolution outstanding grievances.

2. The non-resolution of long outstanding industrial relations matters including:
a. The ECUPS Pension Plan
b. 30% Shift Allowance

Additionally, LUCELEC and the Union were advised on Friday, November 03, 2023, that the issues cited in number 2 have since been sent to the Labour Tribunal for resolution.

This prevents the company from taking further action on these matters until that body has met and issued a judgement.

LUCELEC awaits the response from the Union to the Minister’s letter.

LUCELEC advises its customers and the general public that the company is prepared to take all necessary actions to minimize the impact of the proposed strike action on its operations on the stated day and going forward.

  1. They are making millions every month for their Jewish shareholders but are paying the workers 5 EC dollars an hour ….

  2. The new lights LUCELEC just changed in my area are very dim. As all types of crimes have escalated( murder,robberies, burglaries, etc it is not the time to install these poorly lit street lights. Not fair at all
