TSTT accuses CWU of 'misrepresenting' company's operations

The Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) is maintaining that the state-owned company demonstrates good corporate governance and accountability.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, TSTT called out the Communication Workers Union (CWU) for what it deemed 'ongoing misrepresentations' about the Company's operations.

TSTT said contrary to the statements made by the CWU, the company has upheld the highest management principles which were shown through the commission of an independent Audit Report of the Oracle Universal Licence Agreement negotiations in which its findings were presented to the Board of Directors of TSTT. 

It added that the issues were discussed, ratified and approved by the board which demonstrated transparency.

TSTT and CWU have been back and forth over statements made by CWU President Clyde Elder who claimed to have received "disturbing" documents which reportedly pointed to questionable deals between TSTT and its international partners.

Elder also referenced an alleged forensic audit report regarding the acquisition of essential software licenses by the company.

TSTT had stated that CWU was attempting to prevent the development of the Company. 

The Company said the claims were defamatory and have denied all accusations leveled against them by the Union.
