LIME and ITS employees should be fighting the increased competition in the telecommunications market. Instead, they are fighting each other.
According to Sean Knight, president of the LIME Division of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), that situation would place them behind the eight-ball in the face of increasing competition throughout the Caribbean.
He said that in other regional jurisdictions where LIME operated, such as Antigua and Grenada, more thanc 80 workers had been sent home in the past three months as part of a cost-reduction exercise.
Those layoffs, however, had been done through proper negotiations practices.
“But in the case of Barbados, due process has not been followed. That is why we have the problems we have now,” the division head told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday.
