Warning for BCC
STRIKE ACTION could hit the Barbados Community College (BCC) by next Wednesday.
That’s what the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) is threatening if any temporary workers there are sent home this monthend without discussion with the union.
What’s more, if the BCC’s administration shifts the pay date for next month as they have been doing, they could also face a sit-in by workers.
Yesterday, NUPW general secretary Dennis Clarke made the position clear as he vented his frustration at the silent treatment being meted out to the workers and their union, adding he had had enough.
“I am writing them and giving them until Wednesday to meet with the union. I will shut the Community College down if they miss and send [any workers] home by Monday (March 31),” said Clarke, hours after attending a meeting with workers at BCC.
