BWU to fight for domestic workers
THE BARBADOS WORKERS UNION is taking steps to ensure it includes domestic workers.
General secretary Toni Moore said domestic workers, who were mostly women, were marginalised but the union would broaden its scope for them.
She said domestic workers were often prevented from joining a union for fear of victimisation so it had been an uphill struggle for the union over the past five years to induct them into the fold.
Moore was addressing the union’s two day workshop in commemoration of International Women’s Day at the BWU Labour College, Mangrove, St Philip today.
She said the union would be taking a wider approach so even if the workers do not join, they could still benefit from the union speaking on their behalf. (CA)
