Labor Department Settles With Triangle

The V.I. Government has reached a settlement with former Hovensa contractor Triangle Construction and Maintenance over alleged violations of the territory’s plant closing law and a portion of claims for severance pay, according to Government House.

In 2011, the V.I. Government brought suit against Triangle for alleged violations of the Virgin Islands Plant Closing Act. This week the government and Triangle were able to amicably come to a resolution, according to Government House.

In part, the Government of the Virgin Islands and Triangle have been able to settle some former Triangle employees’ eligibility for severance.

But the settlement requires arbitration to resolve whether other former Triangle employees are entitled to severance pay under the VIPCA. The Labor Department has already begun notifying the affected former Triangle employees and are receiving executive claim forms.

The remaining former Triangle Employees who need to come into the St. Croix office of the Virgin Islands Department of Labor and/or file a claim before the deadline of February 12, 2015 are:

Thomas Appleton, Alfred Ashe Jr., Ismael Aurelien, Darnelle Bannis, Rafael Batista, Jules Benjamin, Timothy Brookes, Phillips Bruney, Charles Cornelius Jr., Alphonso Correa, Manuel A. Coto, David Delgado, Rudy F. Duff, Nicholas Encarnacion Jr., Mark Eugene, Jorge Ferrer, Renison Fingal, Harvey Freeman, Padget Gore, Mario Graham, Charles Haynes III, Zambo Heath, Ishmale Henry, John Hodge, Gideon Hurtault, Mariely John, Tezerd Jones, Flavel Magras, Santiago Lugo, Charles Lynch, Javier
Melendez, Terrence Morris, Pearl Parrilla, Thomas B. Peters, Steve Phillip Sr., Norbert Prospere, Philbert P. Pryce Jr., Elizabeth Ramsingh, Rayneau Regis, Jervain Richardson, Luis Angel Rivera, Sunil Rivera, Ludolph Roberts, Daheem L. Rodgers, Lenny Ruan, Luis Saldana, Kyle Stapleton, George Weston and Shirley A. Winslow.
