For the first time since getting into office, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley met with the National Trade Union Centre (NATUC).

According to NATUC President James Lambert, the Prime Minister, who was accompanied by Labour Minister Jennifer Baptiste-Primus and two officers at Tuesday's meeting, discussed a number of issues, including economic diversification, pension plans for daily rated workers and reverting the retirement age to 65 years.

"So we more or less had this kind of thing. We are very satisfied with the discussion that was held today."

SWWTU President Michael Anissette had serious issues with the Port Authority. He said the Board needs to know its role.

"Where the Board is interfering with the day to day operations of the Port Authority, which is contrary to the governance principles and it is unprofessional."

JTUM also met with the Prime Minister following the his meeting with NATUC.

Its Leader Ancel Roget didn't say if the group was satisfied with the meeting, but simply implied the jury was still out.

JTUM's concern remains retrenchment.

"The advantage that these employees on these hapless workers and we feel that we have a concrete plan on the way forward that would get us out of this current state of affairs and which plan would not see workers being retrenched."
