The Employment Rights Tribunal has ruled that the former workers of the National Conservation Commission were unfairly dismissed.
The Tribunal handed down its much anticipated decision a short while ago.
It dismissed the NCC claims that the National union of Public Workers did not have to be consulted because it was not the recognised union, due to the fact that The NCC held discussions with the NUPW on other matters affecting workers including wage talks.
The NCC did not consult with the workers or the NUPW six weeks before retrenchment as outlined in the employment rights act.
The Tribunal is now considering reinstatement or compensation for the dismissed workers.
