Sandy Lane threatens to pull out of BHTA
The luxurious Sandy Lane Hotel is threatening to pull out of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) and the Barbados Workers Union (BWU), which represents unionised employees there, has summoned its members to two emergency sessions on Monday.
The developments come against the backdrop of an eight per cent increase announced by the BHTA for hotel workers over the next three years.
In a statement yesterday, the BWU said its General Secretary Toni Moore and her deputy, Dwaine Paul, would meet with Sandy Lane workers to discuss a number of critical issues, including the BHTA and the BWU negotiations.
The sessions will take place at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the BWU’s Solidarity House headquarters.
