AN employee of the Transport Division of the Chaguanas Borough Corporation has filed a pre-action protocol letter against the corporation, alleging fraud, misconduct, and calling for the removal of the division’s foreman.
In a letter dated July 9, attorney Richard Jaggasar says the current foreman was promoted ahead of others in the division and uses his position to intimidate, threaten and abuse employees.
A group of workers met with Jaggasar in front of the corporation’s building in Chaguanas on Friday before the letter was hand delivered to chief executive officer, Jameel Ameerlal.
In the letter, Jaggasar said the corporation has failed to provide a safe and secure working environment. He outlined several incidents which, he said, where caused directly by the foreman.
In one incident on April 7, an employee reported that his supervisor came to his home and told him he came to check whether any corporation vehicles or equipment were at his house. He said the foreman threatened several employees and refused to allow them to sign into the corporation’s log book.
On July 3, a petition calling for the foreman’s immediate removal was signed by 30 of the 32 employees of the division. Jaggasar also said a checker at the corporation, who has not been to work for the past three years, continues to be paid a fortnightly salary.
