YESTERDAY?was the last one for those employed with the Beautify Barbados project, but the situation almost turned ugly as angry workers demanded monies due to them.
The 42 workers who were on holiday when their 16 colleagues received letters two weeks ago that the project was closing, returned to work yesterday angry that they had received their letters in the mail.
Furthermore, they complained that they were sent on holiday with no vacation pay and were also supposed to be paid yesterday, but there was no money on the bank when they checked.
“We come down here and the director Mr [Steve] Devonish can’t tell us what is going on. He did not even give us our green papers (termination letters),” one employee charged.
