Airport workers protest

Unionised workers at the Grantley Adams International Airport are off the job at this hour.


Barbados TODAY understands that some employees are picketing outside the airport, to protest the recent breakdown in pay negotiations between management of the airport and the National Union of Public Workers.

Despite the protests, flights into and out of the island are said to be operating as normal.

    Watch the waste pipe at the Airport. Same action plan that took place at Combermere. Different actors. Sabotage has taken over from voluntarism.

    Freundel, you need to assert yourself here…you’ve got enough unemployed folks in Barbados, so issue your warning and take action; e.g., Ronald Reagan.

    I hope when you find your pay packets a little short next pay day you know why.

    But then again lets wait and see if the NUPW makes up the shortfall.

    Which I doubt that they will do being that the NUPW strike fund is empty.
