BWU/BWA talks resume tomorrow
TALKS BETWEEN THE Barbados Water Authority (BWA) and Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) ran for three hours today and will resume tomorrow at 4 p.m. under the chairmanship of Minister of Labour Senator Dr Esther Byer Suckoo.
With striking BWA workers back on the job from this morning, the minister told the country that continuing discussion was needed on the issue which had led to six days of industrial action, since it could not be solved overnight.
“They are not matters beyond our reach but they are urgent, so that’s why we will come back to the table as early as tomorrow afternoon,” she told the media at the end of today’s meeting which ended around noon at the Labour Office in Warrens, St Michael.
Suckoo said last night that the matters would be too detailed to be resolved quickly. (RJ)
