END OF ROAD
Even though workers at Andrews Sugar Factory knew for almost a year that the factory was scheduled to be closed to undergo reconstruction, redundancy letters given to them yesterday still left some a bit shaken.
Some of the severed workers, however, took the news in stride because they were close to pensionable age while others were at a loss on their next step.
Fifty-seven of the 121 staff employed by the Barbados Agricultural Management Company Limited at the St Joseph sugar factory were yesterday given their termination letters and green papers to take to the National Insurance Scheme.
Alonza Sandiford, who worked at the factory for 11 years, was seen waiting for a taxi to help him transport his belongings home. He told the SATURDAY?SUN he was disappointed with the way things turned out and questioned the closure of the factory before the end of this year’s sugar harvest.
