Georgetown, Guyana (GINA): Guyana’s Private Sector Commission (PSC) is of the view that if the Linden situation is not resolved soon, the result could be serious, as there are hundreds of jobs at stake and potential investment in the mining industry is being hindered as a result of the current occurrences in Linden.

“People are losing their jobs…I believe we are approaching the tipping point if this problem does not end within the next 24-48 hrs the result could be serious… we understand that Toucan Connections has decided to lay off its employees… BOSAI, which had a massive investment plan, is thinking again because they cannot even get their managers into the plant,” chairman of the PSC Ronald Webster explained.

Webster, Clinton Urling of the Georgetown Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and Carvil Duncan of the Guyana Labour Union on Monday evening spoke of the impact and consequences of the protest action on the programme titled ‘Issues in the news’ on the National Communications Network.  Webster explained that the PSC is the apex organisation for the chambers of commerce, and the tourist industry amongst others and as such would receive feedback from a much broader base.
