Tribunal to meet tomorrow
Almost two weeks after the impasse between the two main unions on the island, the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), was referred to the Employment Rights Tribunal by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart for arbitration, the first meeting of that body is to be convened tomorrow at 2 p.m.
The panel is drawn from the business sector, Government and the trade union movement.
The nine-member tribunal is headed by attorney-at-law Tracea Codrington.
Besides Codrington, the other members of the tribunal are deputy chairman and attorney-at-law Nicole Roachford and Ryan Omari Drakes representing the Government; Elsworth Young, John Blackman and Beverley Beckles representing the workers; and Dr Atwell Thomas, Dr Hensley Sobers and Colin Walcott representing the employers.
