Trade unions cautioned

Opposition Member of Parliament Kerrie Symmonds has issued a strong word of warning to the country’s two leading trade unions as they prepare for further negotiations on the layoffs at the National Conservation Commission.

Speaking at a Christ Church East branch meeting last night at St Christopher Primary School, the MP said trade union representatives must not accommodate any political tribalism or nepotism as they try to broker an agreement at the NCC.

A committee set up to scrutinise the layoffs is set to meet at 2 pm today at the Labour Department.

The members would be going through the list of 200 workers who were sent home to ensure the retrenchments were conducted in the right manner.

Barbados Workers Union spokesman Dwaine Paul is hoping for a resolution.
