On Friday 2012-03-02 Samsung, a South Korean Corporation, locked out its workers employed at the construction of the Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel Project at Petrotrin's Pointe-A-Pierre refinery in South Trinidad.

The workers are aggrieved at the company's failure to meet the terms and conditions that are supposed to apply to contract workers working at Petrotrin. They are also aggrieved at the company's failure to pay PAYE and NIS and the horrendous health and safety conditions under which they are forced to work.
Comrade Eric Scott, spokesperson for the workers explains the situation here and a female worker gives her opinion here
