BWU: Look out!
BARBADOS WORKERS’ UNION (BWU) has put Barbados on notice – those who have ears to hear, let them hear.
And all ears will be tuned in to what is coming out of an emergency meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. today when the executive council of the BWU goes into a huddle at union headquarters at Solidarity House to determine the next step in its battle with the state-owned Barbados Water Authority (BWA).
Sir Roy Trotman, BWU’s general secretary, announced the development at BWA’s Manor Lodge Complex yesterday, three days into industrial action by BWA workers who walked off the job last Thursday, protesting several outstanding matters, including that of increments to employees.
Sir Roy warned BWA management to submit a written proposal before the executive council starts its meeting today or Phase 2 of the industrial action would be enforced.
