The strike which crippled Barbados Holdings Limited’s (BHL) operations yesterday is off.

From today, it will be back to business for the manufacturing company.

Following a four and a half hour meeting between BHL’s management and delegates from the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) yesterday evening, both parties have agreed to hold further talks next week in an attempt to resolve the issues which resulted in close to 500 BHL employees walking off their jobs.

All of BHL’s subsidiaries – the Barbados Bottling Company, Banks Breweries, B&B Distribution and Barbados Dairy Industries – were affected when over 80 per cent of the company’s 580 employees staged the protest.

BHL’s chief executive officer (CEO), Richard Cozier, although not being able to give a definite figure, estimated the strike had cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
