BWU warns of national strike

Upset that some local employers were unilaterally changing employment conditions and were not paying workers their due, the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) has served notice of a possible national strike.

This comes against the backdrop of a myriad of problems in the utilities sector, as well as in construction, manufacturing, agriculture, tourism  and financial services.

BWU General Secretary Toni Moore told reporters at a press conference at the union’s headquarters today that the situation had now reached boiling point.

While declining to go into details  on the proposed strike action,  she said the union’s Executive Council had already given the go ahead for any action deemed by the BWU to be necessary.

    Now this is most interesting. The unions did little when the govt recently literally disemboweled it, by sending home over 3000 workers. The unions did little, all be it. They obviously agreed with govt with the terminations of the workers. They now expect business organization not to follow the foot steps of govt. lol. Mr. C Franklin right to put them under pressure. Unity can be found else where. I think the Customs Officer got it right. The people they represent sold them out. Now want to play they have the peoples interest at heart. I don’t believe them. I will take my popcorn in hand and watch this battle play out. For as a union member, I think my union leaders deserve lashes.

    I’m waiting anxiously to see the retired ones receive their various national rewards for sacrificing its subjects.
