Hinkson: Tribunal long overdue

Hinkson 2

Opposition Member of Parliament Edmund Hinkson believes the decision to refer the National Conservation Commission dispute to the tribunal stage is long overdue.

He told a Barbados Labour Party meeting in St James last night that lawyers and others made the suggestion months ago, but were ignored.

The law is there now, Employment Rights Tribunal created under the Employment Rights Act that, as we said was proclaimed exactly a month ago – May 24 last year. It’s there,” he said.

Hinkson, the St James North MP, who is also an attorney has offered free legal advice to public servants in his constituency who have been laid off by Government.

He said he will begin meeting with some of them today.
