APPENDIX  1 A - FIRST CROP 2005 WEEKLY PRODUCTION INCENTIVE

1.
(a)        The first Crop Weekly Sugar Production Incentive for 2005 shall be based

on the scheduled Factory production for each Estate as set out in Appendix 1 B attached hereto.

(b)        Payment will be based on the individual Estate's achievement of one hundred percent (100%) or more of its weekly target.  The targets having been achieved, qualified workers on that estate will receive one (1) day's pay.

(c)        If the Estate's achievement is one hundred and thirty percent (130%) or more of its target, then qualified workers on that estate will receive two (2) days' pay.

(d)        Where an estate grinds beyond the scheduled grinding period indicated in Appendix 1 B attached, the incentive shall be paid providing the said Estate grinds for a minimum of 90 hours per week during the week or weeks beyond the scheduled grinding period and providing also the Estate achieves the target(s) set by management for the said extended week(s).  Such target(s) may be influenced by either availability of canes, or the potential of the factory or a combination of both as determined by Management.

2.         Qualification of Individual Workers to Receive the Payment

(a)        To qualify for the payment, the target having been achieved, the individual worker will be required to satisfy a work qualification of at least 80% of the days available to him during the week.

(b)        In addition to having worked the relevant qualifying percentage of days on which work was available to him, he must necessarily work at least 50% of the days available to his category for that week.

(c)                All casual and sick leave shall be regarded as absence from work.

3.         Calculation of a Day's Pay shall be based on the following principles:

(a)        In the case of qualified workers who worked the entire week, the computation of a day’s pay shall be the earnings for the week divided by the days' worked, provided that the maximum divisor shall be 5.

(b)        In the case of qualified workers under 2 (b) who have worked and qualified, but did not work the entire week, the computation of a day's pay shall be the earnings for the          week divided by the number of days available to his category in respect of the said week.

4.         Production Targets were fixed on the following principles:

(a)        Where a holiday occurred during a week, the target for that week was reduced from the normal production potential of the respective Estates as indicated in paragraph 4 (b) below.

(b)        Factory Production has been set at a level that is within reasonable limits of attainment by the factory and the availability of cane by the Field, given normal operations.

5.         Days of Credit:

(a)        A time-rated worker who is scheduled to work and does work on his day-off shall have such days credited for the purpose of qualification.

(b)        A piece-rated worker who is required to work on Sundays and Public Holidays and does work shall have such days credited for the purpose of qualification.

6.         Under current arrangement, the incentive is tax-free.
