Day two of work stoppage at Land Tax Department

It’s day two of industrial action by the estimated 100 employees of the Land Tax and Land Evaluation Departments.

Yesterday, the workers walked out the old National Insurance Building on Fairchild Street, where their offices are located, protesting the “sickening” conditions.

Today they stayed off the job, vowing not to return to the “offending ” building.

Industrial Relations Officer of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) Wayne Walrond told Barbados TODAY management gave the staff assurances that their grievances were receiving urgent attention.  But he is insisting staying at the old NIS building is not an option.

“The workers will continue to report for duty, but cannot carry out their duties in that building. Until the offending situation is rectified, the workers can’t function,” Walrond said. “We are playing it day to day.”
