Government Works to Resolve Constitutional Issues in Sugar Industry Act
The court ruling that several portions of the Sugar Industry Act was unconstitutional remains an issue as both the government and BSI/ASR are hoping to overcome. Minister Kareem Musa is a part of a government’s working group hoping to find solutions on the situation.
Minister Musa went to note that as things currently stands, there is a collective bargaining agreement that expires in November. He notes that they are hoping to overcome the impasse before the agreement expires, and the start of the next sugar crop.
