Workers at the National Housing Trust, the NHT are restive at this hour.

Several reportedly called in sick today as a dispute between the union representing some employees at the entity and the Government intensifies.

The workers are represented by the University and Allied Workers Union, UAWU.

UAWU third Vice President, Garfield Harvey is denying that the workers have taken industrial action.

However, he concedes that a number of workers called in sick today amidst discord at the entity.
