After a delay of nearly five months, retrenched Drainage Department workers finally began receiving their severance pay today.

Senior industrial relations officer at the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Wayne Walrond, told Barbados TODAY that the process of paying workers what
was due to them would continue tomorrow.

NUPW general secretary Dennis Clarke, at a meeting at the union’s headquarters on Monday, had asked the workers who were sent home at the end of last year when the unit closed, to give him three days to address their concerns about non-payment.

“So I believe the matter with the drainage workers and the NUPW is now closed,” Walrond said.
