DLP puts workers first

Social Share

Minister of Small Business, Denis Kellman today blamed the former Owen Arthur government for leaving Barbadian workers by the wayside, while letting Government and employers have their way during the Barbados Labour Party’s 14-year tenure.
Speaking in the House of Assembly during debate on a resolution to note and approve Protocol VI of the Social Partnership, Kellman said the previous BLP government had been given advice on how to properly use the excess revenue earned when Value Added Tax was first introduced in Barbados.
He said the new Democratic Labour Party administration had made it their business to put the lot of workers first, as clearly shown by their recent passing of a new Employment Rights Bill last month, and now with the approval of Protocol VI of the Social Partnership.
“The workers of Barbados were not getting their fair share, but we took care of that.” (BA)
