Port workers off the job

Unionised workers at the Bridgetown Port are off the job.

The action, which is being viewed as a major setback by Port officials, has been taken in solidarity with striking Barbados Water Authority (BWA) employees, who have been off the job for nearly a week now.


BWU General Secretary Toni Moore (centre) has stepped up pressure on the BWA.

Just yesterday Barbados Workers Union (BWU) General Secretary Toni Moore warned of stepped up protests in the BWU’s quest to get the BWA to honour payment of outstanding increments of $33 million, due over the past 10 years.

However, the BWA has been contending that the matter is “very complex”, while warning that a workers’ strike is not in the national interest at this time.

In recent months, the BWA has been grappling with water outages in several parishes and other woes.
