Week before last, the truckers were paid $70.00 per load, but went to the office on Friday past only to be told that they would be paid $40.00 per load for trucking from Cable Beach to the dump and back.
The company that has this particular contract is Mosko (of course). This means they are being paid $75.00 per load and paying the truckers $40.00 per load thereby making a profit of $35.00 per load while paying zero expenses.
The person in charge at the office was told what was tabled in the House of Assembly, but responded “Hubert Ingraham has no jurisdiction there”.
The truckers are meeting in the morning (Monday the 14th) at the vacant lot east of the Cable Beach Police station in protest of this robbery committed against them.
