Should I say the time is here or should I ask, is the time near? This is the question on my mind at the moment and I am of the firm conviction that the time is here. It’s time to privatize the Sugar Industry.
I know for sure lots of persons out there after reading that bit would think that it’s “crazy” to say that, but from the economic and business perspective, I am quite sure it is the best thing to do.
When we have to deal with the twaddle of strikes and union invasion on production and productivity and the criticism of workers on that which give them their daily bread, can we really move forward like this? This is the big question.
Recently, we have witnessed strikes and Union actions which caused the estate to lose millions. Keep in mind, lots of millions. This would be the difference.
If the Industry were privatized, then it would have operated on a different level. In that way, workers would ever receive a better wage or salary and can rely on the efficiency of the private industry for their welfare.
I think many of us know about the management style of privately run company rather than one which is run by a government, where workers can go on strike and government have to flush money into an industry to keep it flourishing.
Let’s view any privately, run company and do a comparison with GuySuCo. The difference is vividly clear. Time of work, commitment, remuneration, amongst are just a few to mention on the basis of which a privately own company operate.
Just tell a GuySuCo worker that he/she has to be committed to her work and you will hear the response. Trust me it’s not the best of vocabulary.
I strongly call on the relevant authorities to consider the privatization of the Industry since the current situation seems uncorrectable due to the mind-set of the workers and also the untimely and sometimes brainless call by the Union for strikes etc. As the old people saying goes, “do something before something do you”.
