CIBC FirstCaribbean has observed media reports of a statement from the Technical and Allied Workers’ Union in the weekend press relating to allegations surrounding the dismissal of an employee.
CIBC FirstCaribbean never takes matters such as these lightly.
We are confident that the bank has acted responsibly and reasonably in all the circumstances. However, we have always articulated and continue to take the firm position that we do not debate or address internal matters within the public domain. This is particularly relevant in view of the fact that the matter has been escalated to the Labour Commissioner.
We would wish to reiterate that we have ensured compliance with and adherence to the laws of Grenada, the policies and procedures of the Bank and the established protocols of Industrial Relations.
We are working towards an amicable outcome to this matter and remain committed to highest of standards and established protocols in all our interactions with our employees and their representatives. Moreover, we are steadfast in our commitment to the development of our team in Grenada.
