Rusal Suspends its Guyana operations


The company has delivered written notices of termination to 326 employees. Following the illegitimate and serious actions, that has gone beyond the control of the government and enforcement agencies, including arson of the electricity pylon basement and other corporate property and blocking of the river, RUSAL considers it’s advisable to suspend and freeze operations of Bauxite Company of Guyana (BCGI)

The continuous growth of the unrest is impacting the company’s operations. As of now, RUSAL believes the scope for doing further business in Guyana is now critically limited.

All expatriate employees have been relocated on the ground of safety and security.
