BWA dispute before minister

Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer-Suckoo will explore a resolution to the ongoing dispute between the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) and the Barbados Water Authority (BWA).

A strike by the water workers enters its fifth day tomorrow with no end in sight, as the BWU has already made it clear that it would keep them off the job for as long as was necessary.

However, Barbados TODAY was advised that Dr Byer-Suckoo had scheduled a meeting with a BWU delegation for tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. in Parliament Building, the City.

It was not immediately clear what the agenda would be, but the union has contended that the 830 workers were owned over $30 million in increments for the past ten years.

Minister of Water Resources Management Dr David Estwick last week pleaded with the workers not to strike, but his appeal fell on death ears.

The BWU has complained that the water company refused to stick to a deadline by which it would present a proposal on the issue to workers. (NC)
