NUPW wants BCC investigation
THE NATIONAL UNION of Public Workers today called on Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler to order a “full investigation” into the operations of the Barbados Community College (BCC).
General secretary of the union Dennis Clarke said the BCC was attempting to break labour regulations in offering part-time tutors some new contracts.
He told reporters the college was trying to make some lecturers independent contractors, responsible for meeting their own national insurance and other costs, but retaining control and giving the lecturers restrictive terms and conditions of employment.
Clarke also claimed that the college’s administrators were dragging their feet on discussions with the union on the matter. (TY)
