Frabelle staff extend stop work

Frabelle PNG Limited staff in Lae have extended their stop work strike until next Monday.


Despite the management of the company promising to address one of the two issues raised in a petition, which was delivered on Monday, staff have decided to continue their protest.

Spokesperson for staff, Mathew Som, told Loop PNG that during a meeting this morning, management had agreed to count hours worked on Sunday as overtime.

He said the initial arrangement saw staff work Sundays but their hours were paid as regular and not overtime.

Som added that management however, failed to positively respond to the other petition to increase the salary increment to 50 toea and above, resulting in workers deciding to extend their strike.

Attempts to get Frabelle management on record regarding the issue was unsuccessful.
