ECA's Statement on the Government's Mid-Year Budget Review


The Employers Consultative Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ECA) views the proposed measures articulated by the Honourable Minister of Finance as setting the tone for Trinidad and Tobago to take ownership and responsibility for charting a new course in this period of structural adjustment.  We fully support the view that it cannot be business as usual and, more importantly, we can no longer continue to spend more than we are earning.

In light of the recent industrial court judgment involving Arcelor Mittal and the Steel Workers’ Union of Trinidad and Tobago, the Employers Consultative Association (ECA) is suggesting that legislation be expanded or introduced to provide for the layoff process.
