CTUSAB meets with Sinckler
OFFICIALS from the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) met with Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler this morning for two hours at Government Headquarters to discuss the proposed lay-off of over 3 000 public workers.
Following the meeting, CTUSAB president Cedric Murrell told the media that Sinckler explained to them in greater detail why government had taken the decision to cut staff.
“We discussed how best the unions of this country, under the umbrella of the Congress, can respond and react to those proposals,” he said.
Asked if he was satisfied with the discussions Murrell reiterated “we are never satisfied when you have a situation where as many as 3 000 of our colleagues are going to find themselves out of work”.
He noted that the CTUSAB’S executive board will meet tomorrow afternoon to discuss the situation, after which they will issue a Press statement. (MB)
