BCCI calls on Sir Roy to get it right

Social Share

The Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI)?has thrown its support behind Diamonds International, saying it was appalled by statements attributed to Sir Roy Trotman, general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU).
The BCCI said it  consulted with Diamonds International, which employs 130 workers, to ascertain the facts and the company reported that seven people had their contracts terminated following an extended period of consultation as a result of the recommendations of their immediate supervisors.
The BCCI called on Sir Roy to investigate the facts and, “once he is satisfied that he has been misinformed, withdraw his uncalled for remarks”.
At Tuesday’s May Day rally at Browne’s Beach, Sir Roy threatened to call out hundreds of unionised workers across the country for what he described as an act of unfair dismissal of 20 jewellery store employees. (MK)
