NCC talks today

THE?STATUS of the 250 National Conservation Commission (NCC)?workers now facing imminent retrenchment, is coming up for discussion this morning when Sir Roy Trotman leads a Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) team to talks with NCC?management.
Sir Roy is expected to ask for an enhanced package deal for the workers and if possible, a reduction in the list to be placed on the breadline. There is much speculation that the workers will receive letters at monthend.
The union said the meeting had added significance in that this marked one of the few times that one of the Government agencies would be meeting with the BWU prior to the sacking of workers.
“We have written the NCC for quite some time and it is heartening they are meeting with us with so much at stake. It is disappointing that some other statutory organisations have not had the courtesy to meet with the union.
