The Banking, Insurance and General Workers Union has condemned the attack on the media by the CEO of A&V Oil & Gas over the weekend.

BIGWU says it's once again calling on media employers to meet with the union to formulate a Protocol of Protection for working journalists and camera personnel covering controversial news stories that put them at risk.

BIGWU says Trinidad and Tobago has now become a very violent society and there is every likelihood that there would be a repetition of this kind of activity in the future.

The union represents workers at a number of media houses and reminds all employers and workers in the media sector that the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) allows workers to remove themselves from assignments that will threaten their lives or their limbs from injury of whatever kind.
