THE Sugar Tribunal Commission is planning to revive the memorandum of gang contract in a bid to hold sugarcane cutting gangs responsible for their deals with sugarcane farmers.
Sugarcane Commissioner Timothy Brown said a legally-binding contract for sugarcane cutting gangs was being prepared.
Mr Brown said they planned to make the agreement between farmers and their sugarcane-cutting gangs legally-binding.
"This was a really big issue in past years when farmers complained of labourers who did not keep their part of the bargain and often left the cane fields before finishing their tasks," said Mr Brown.
"We are also looking at legislation that will determine the best structure for the development and expansion of the sugar industry."
