Nation-wide strike off

Trade Union veteran Sir Roy Trotman chats with Minister of Labour Esther Byer-Suckoo earlier this week.

The planned nation wide strike by the Barbados Workers Union over the “premature” laying off of 97 employees from LIME, was put on pause – at least for today.

That is because LIME and the BWU returned to the bargaining table over the issue this afternoon, thus honouring the union’s main demand to avoid the strike.

The meeting under the chairmanship of Minister of Labour Dr. Esther Byer-Suckoo, meant that the telcommunications company has met the ultimatum of agreeing to get back to the negotiation table by today.

Barbadians will know what the next move will be by the union – and LIME – after this afternoon’s talks concluded.
