STRIKE ACTION in the National Conservation Commission (NCC) retrenchment issue looks set for Monday when the island’s two largest labour unions will call out their workers.
All NCC workers have been summoned to two meetings on Monday morning: the first with the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) at Solidarity House in Harmony Hall, St Michael, at 7:30 a.m. and the second at 9 a.m. at the National Union of Public Workers’ (NUPW) headquarters in Dalkeith, St Michael.
Both meetings come against the backdrop of two weeks of talks between NCC and both unions, some of whose officials have described last Thursday’s meeting as “the last straw”.
A statement from the NUPW yesterday evening said its meeting would “update the workers on the status of the negotiations held with the Labour Department and to chart the way forward” while the BWU said it would “report on the impasse”.
