Back to work

24 hours after the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) had threatened to step up industrial action at the Central Bank of Barbados, the dispute has been settled.


Mere hours after taking up their places outside of the Tom Adams Financial Centre this morning, the workers returned to their duties after BWU general secretary Toni Moore announced that management had changed its stance on a controversial appointment, which led to the five-day protest.

Moore informed the employees that she received a letter from the bank indicating that the appointment, which involved the promotion of an intern to a temporary position with a higher salary than some appointed staff had been rescinded.

    After chilling out on the Central Bank’s premises and not doing a stroke of work the past Four days , will these staff members of the Central Bank be paid by the Central Bank at the end of this week and the end of this Month?

    Or will the Barbados Workers Union pay them from their strike fund?

    If the Central Bank pays them for not working then the Govt. should pay the SSA workers for not working as well during the recent strike.
