The T&T Coalition of Services Industries (TTCSI) can play a role in helping retrenched Petrotrin employees.

Lara Quentrall-Thomas, president, TTCSI, commenting on the restructuring of the state-owned energy company, said: “There is always an opportunity in a crisis but I think we need to be part of that conversation. How will it impact the services sector in south and central Trinidad? What can we do to provide services for those individuals who are being made redundant? Are there job and training opportunities we can provide through our members?”

Quentrall-Thomas said, at present, the issue is too “hot” for the TTCSI to make specific proposals.

“You have to be very careful. If we stick our toe in that cauldron at the moment, people might say we are trying to capitalise on people’s misery. We will probably have to go through Petrotrin rather than the union to offer our services that our members have.”

However, there are services TTCSI members can offer to Petrotrin’s employees.
