NCC and unions back to Labour Department
The management of the National Conservation Commission, representatives of the Barbados Workers Union and the National Union of Public Workers head back to the table to settle the contentious layoffs of 200 workers.
The meeting is scheduled to take place at the Labour Department at 2:00pm.
The talks come against the backdrop of warnings from the NUPW that it will step up its action against the NCC.
In a unanimous decision, the NUPW’s National Council gave the nod for the union to mobilize public servants if the matter is not settled.
Both the BWU and the NUPW have accused the NCC of not adhering to agreed procedures to layoff workers.
