Over 200 NCC workers to be retrenched

The National Union of Public Workers is reporting that over 200 workers at the National Conservation Commission are due to be sent home.

General Secretary Dennis Clarke says he also hopes to hold meetings this week with the principal of the Barbados Community College.

While he can’t give definitive numbers at this stage, the union official says people at the college will definitely be going home.

My thing is look at it early so that the workers would not be shocked like what happened with NHC and Drainage [Division]. The longer we mess around with it, it’s going come suddenly on you and that’s what we don’t want,” he said.

Clarke said the NUPW has still not received a copy of the retrenchment list from Government, explaining that the situation is complicated.

You all do not understand or try to understand what you’re dealing with because you have people who are pointed out but you can’t touch and they might only have in three years or four years and that is why the exercise is taking so long,” he added.
