The National Union of Public Workers’ acting General Secretary, Roslyn Smith has signaled intentions to take the concerns of disgruntled custom guards and officers to her National Council.

Following what was described as “robust” discussions with workers at union headquarters this morning, Smith told reporters that the council needed to make the final decision on the union’s next move regarding Government’s plans to relocate the Customs and Excise Department to the Barbados Revenue Authority by July 1.
