THE DISCUSSION about Barbados having a 24-hour workday has been perverted by a “small section of players” with selfish interests at heart, says general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), Toni Moore.
While addressing the union’s two-day workshop as part of International Women’s Day at the BWU Labour College, Mangrove, St Philip, Moore said the discussion began with positive intent but has now been degraded.
