GTT as one of Guyana’s largest corporate companies has not paid its pensioners and neither offered any information with regards to when these payments will become a reality. After winding up the pension scheme at the end of April, 2020, and had promised “to do our best to complete all payments by March 31, 2021”, the only unofficial information that is circulating is that there is a deficit with the pension fund and the company would not be honouring same. Why weren’t we told about this before? Are you as a company comfortable with this position? We the pensioners are definitely not. Come clean with us GTT! We want our pension now! We have spent most of our lives building this company and acquiring the core of your customers. Why deny us our benefits? In most recent years the company has decided to end the contracts of some staff members without any justifiable reason. These persons are now eligible for pension. Where is the care? Your arbitrary delay of our pension and subjectively deciding what will be paid does not resonate well with us. This is a pandemic period and we need our money now!
