Workers to be terminated in FLOW/LIME merger

Workers to be terminated in FLOW/LIME merger

An estimated seventeen workers were due to receive letters of termination this week, as a result of the merger between FLOW and British telecommunications giant, LIME, reliable sources have told the Times.

However of the seventeen, it is understood that four  workers had requested voluntary separation.

According to information obtained by the Times, of the remaining thirteen, three had already expressed a desire to leave.

The union representing the workers is the National Workers Union (NWU).

It is reported that initially, the number employees that were targeted for separation as a result of the merger between LIME and FLOW was sixty-four.

The number was reduced over time.

The Times has been reliably informed that the terminations are expected to take effect at the end of June.

Several workers at FLOW Grenada will also be sent home as a result of the merger with LIME, according to a CMC report.

FLOW Grenada and LIME employ 145 workers and it’s understood that 39 are expected to receive “exit letters” on or before June 30, amid speculation that the companies will not be offering any voluntary separation packages, the report said.

CMC has also reported that the St Lucia-based Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (ECTEL) is yet to give full approval for the legal merging of LIME and FLOW.

It said a few weeks ago the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) was notified that all LIME stores will be re-branded using FLOW.

    Why do you put politics in everything? It’s not a month since UWP is in office. Give the people a chance. They have to clean up the mess that was left behind.
