BAMP not taking part in tomorrow’s strike action
While the Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners (BAMP) has revealed it will be giving its full moral support to the National Union of Public Worker’s proposed national strike tomorrow, doctors will not be withdrawing their services.
This assurance was delivered in statement released by its president Dr Carlos Chase, who said that while the association supported the stance of both the NUPW and its umbrella organization CTUSAB, in the interest of safeguarding public care they would remain on the job during the strike.
“The council of BAMP has agreed that age discrimination has no place in modern Barbadian society and that industrial relations in Barbados at the present time have reached a critical level. We have therefore agreed to give our full moral support to our umbrella organization CTUSAB as well as to the NUPW in this action.
“However, we have informed the NUPW that we will not be withdrawing our services from the public on Monday July 6, in the interest of safeguarding patient care,” the statement which was released yesterday said.
