A number of options on the way forward for the sugar industry were presented to members of Cabinet on Tuesday last.Speaking on the discussions that occurred in this regard between Government and the team from the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) was Minister of State, Joseph Harmon.Minister of State, Joseph HarmonHarmon said that the officials presented a number of alternatives regarding the way forward with the sector. The Minister of State declined however to reveal what those “options” were.However, Kaieteur News was able to confirm from two Government Ministers that the options up for consideration include privatization as recommended in the Commission of Inquiry into GuySuCo and the most extreme being the closure of the sector.According to the COI report, it was recommended that the process of privatization should start as early as practicable with an aim to be completed within a three-year period. As a consequence, the report said that the state should divest itself of all assets, activities and operations currently associated with GuySuCo.The future of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) and the need for a turnaround plan were high on Cabinet’s agenda and was a topic of discussion last week.Harmon, during a post cabinet press briefing, told reporters that some decisions regarding the sector will have to be made by year end.He said that this position was taken after “detailed and frank” presentations by GuySuCo officials to members of Cabinet.Harmon said that the GuySuCo team was led by its Chairman, Dr. Clive Thomas. Also on the team were GuySuCo Chief Executive Officer Errol Hanoman, and the Chairman of the task force on diversification possibilities in GuySuCo.Harmon said that the team briefed Cabinet on the state of the sugar industry, the challenges it faces and the options available to address the situation.The politician recalled that after the presentation of the COI report on GuySuCo, Cabinet was briefed by the Commissioners. From that meeting, Harmon said that Cabinet outlined a five-point approach to address the issues raised by the Commission of Inquiry.Harmon said that those points were that GuySuCo must present Cabinet with a plan which addresses the issues raised by the Commission Of Inquiry; Cabinet would give consideration to that plan; and having considered the plan, Supply NFL Jerseys, Cabinet would engage the Opposition and the National Assembly in consultations on the plan.The approach also mandates that Cabinet would hold consultations with other stakeholders including, the workers of the corporation and the related unions.“Therefore the presentation which was held on Tuesday was a part of that process outlined. The presentation to Cabinet gave considerations on the matters which ranged from maintaining the status quo which is just do nothing and just allow it to go as it is, to the point of a limited form of diversification, ” said the Minister of State.He added, “So there were several proposals. Of course the position that was taken by GuySuCo itself was that the worst option is to maintain the status quo since in that regard; there were serious implications for the National Treasury.“And those implications are that it will require $18.6B in 2017 and $21.4B in 2018. That is just to maintain the status quo.”Harmon said that this, of course, is added to GuySuCo’s current debt which is in excess of $80B.In preparation for the next step, Harmon revealed that Cabinet appointed a subcommittee to look at the presentation made by the GuySuCo officers. He said that the team is expected to take into consideration, the points raised by the presenters and craft an approach which will mostly likely be used by the full Cabinet.The subcommittee is expected to complete and present its report to Cabinet within two weeks. The members of the subcommittee include Minister of Agriculture, Noel Holder; Finance Minister, Winston Jordan; Natural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman; and Minister of State, Joseph Harmon.Minister Harmon asked to specify what “options” were presented by the GuySuCo team and if one of those included the closure of more sugar estates, said, “There are options…and we are in the process of deliberations on these options.“It is not always good to go about it and say look these are the options and our deliberations. You would find that at the end of the deliberations, you arrive at a conclusion that is not consistent with your earlier position.“So it is always important that we be very careful with what we announce and put out there. Any wrong step can send the wrong signal and create panic and confusion.”

There will be no removal of garbage in the city as of today, unless the Mayor and City Council of Georgetown (M&CC) is able to find in excess of $20M to pay the two private companies it has contracted to collect solid waste.In her announcements during the municipality’s statutory meeting yesterday, Acting Town Clerk Yonette Pluck-Cort, revealed that contractors, Puran Brothers and Cevon’s Waste Management, have withdrawn their services due to non-payment on the municipality’s part.She revealed that the contractors have not been paid for the months of March and April, and have indicated their desire to be paid in full.Pluck-Cort said that the management of Puran Brothers in a correspondence sent to the city entity, last Thursday indicated that the company was experiencing serious financial difficulties. It was pointed out in the correspondence, Pluck-Cort added, that the company would withdraw its services as of yesterday.According to the Acting Town Clerk, the Acting City Treasurer, China NBA Jerseys, Andrew Meredith, had disclosed that he could make available two weeks’ payment, amounting to about $10M, to the contractor. However, Pluck-Cort noted that the contractor had pointed out that the amount could not suffice and therefore withdrew the company’s services.The Acting Town Clerk also reported to the council yesterday that another letter from the management of Cevon’s Waste Management, had gained the attention of Solid Waste Director, Hubert Urlin. She noted that the letter was of similar tone to that sent by Puran Brothers.The letter, she said, has also indicated that that company had intended to cease operation yesterday.Meredith revealed that the municipality fell in arrears for the months of March and April, adding that the council does not yet owe the contractors for this month, as four weeks of credit is allowed.He attributed the municipality’s inability to pay the contractors to the revenue collection process, adding that more strenuous and serious efforts must be directed to this process.In recognition of the fact that the situation could have devastating effects in the city, City Mayor Hamilton Green said that the matter must be addressed with much urgency.He recommended that the Finance Committee of the municipality must meet as early as this morning to deliberate on the matter, even as he requested that the Town Clerk organise a meeting between him and the two contractors.However, Councillor Ranwell Jordan in highlighting the seriousness of the situation, suggested that a meeting with the relevant persons be held last night in order to uncover any possible source of financing to pay the contractors.Deputy Mayor Robert Williams pointed to the fact that it is common knowledge that the municipality would normally turn to taxpayers, such as the government, who are always willing to pay taxes even ahead of time.Meanwhile, the Public Relations Department of the municipality, has been tasked with advising residents of Georgetown of the situation which could greatly affect them.

The country’s sugar company and the main workers’ union are continuing to cross swordsFile photo: Members of GAWU and GuySuCo meet in October and agreed on arbitration proceedings.over a worker of Skeldon Factory who was fired in September, following an alleged slapping incident with the estate manager.That incident had sparked significant strike actions by workers to have their colleague reinstated. It had also sparked countrywide blackouts because the co-generation facility at Skeldon factory could not be operated.Yesterday, both the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) and the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), issued separate statements, disagreeing with the Arbitration Tribunal headed by former Chief Labour Officer, Mohamed Akeel.GuySuCo insisted that the worker, Daniel Stephen, remains dismissed and that the arbitration proceedings are continuing.GAWU, on the other hand, said that the proceedings have ended.According to GuySuCo in a statement, Stephen is to remain off the job until the Arbitrator submits his award. The corporation claimed that GAWU was taking it upon itself to instruct the worker to go back to his duties.“As the arbitration continues to investigate the disciplinary action taken against Daniel Stephen for physically assaulting the Estate Manager, GuySuCo made its position abundantly clear that Daniel Stephen will remain off the job until the Arbitrator submits his award. Further, Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, the union should desist from instructing Mr. Stephen to resume work as they previously did.”GuySuCo said its position is consistent with the Arbitrator’s letter dated November 28, 2014, where he advised  GAWU that the arbitration proceedings is not concluded until the award is presented to the Chief Labour Officer and the parties involved. “The Arbitrator went further and invited the union to a meeting to “continue the process” on December 2, 2014. Unfortunately the union did not attend the meeting.”GuySuCo said that as far as it is concerned, the arbitration is not concluded and there is no award. “Mr. Stephen‘s disciplinary action without pay will continue until otherwise ordered by the Arbitrator.”However, GAWU insisted that the proceedings came to an end on November 26.According to GAWU, Akeel made it clear, in his last session on November 26, 2014 that “if we don’t agree to move forward by altering the Terms of Reference which I cannot force, my duty (which is) based on the Terms of Reference is finished, because there is no disciplinary action for me to inquire into, so the matter is concluded here.”GAWU said it was invited to another meeting on Tuesday but refused to go because the Arbitrator had already said that proceedings could not go further.In October, both GuySuCo and GAWU agreed for arbitration after the corporation refused to reinstate the fired worker.The industrial dispute arose after disciplinary action was taken by GuySuCo against Stephen who was accused of slapping Skeldon Estate Manager, Dave Kumar, back in September.  It was alleged that the manager used racial slurs against the staff while in a drunken state.It was agreed that the said matter be referred to an arbitration tribunal, which will enquire into the disciplinary action taken against Stephen, and having regard to the evidence and submission by the parties to make an award as the arbitrator deems fit. The parties agreed that the award of the tribunal shall be final and binding.Skeldon sugar workers burned already cut cane stalks and protested for days following the worker’s dismissal in late September.They were upset that the manager fired the staffer as part of disciplinary action when he was directly involved in an altercation with the staffer. They claimed at the time, the manager was drunk and that he is usually disrespectful to staff members, but picked on Stephen and used racial slurs against him. The workers remained resolute that Stephen be returned to work or they would remain on strike.
