THE BARBADOS WORKERS’ UNION (BWU) has signalled its intention to pull the plug on the Barbados Light & Power Company’s plans to lay off scores of workers if there are no prior discussions in keeping with the “principles and policies” governing the Social Partnership.

The union has also warned Light & Power “to put aside this circular until you have written the Minister of Labour in a manner provided for by our labour laws and practices” and then formally “request” a meeting with the BWU.

In a letter addressed to the managing director of BL&P, the union, under the signature of its general secretary Toni Moore, expressed surprise “to see your circular letter to all staff dated March 25, 2015 introducing your company’s cost reduction plan”.
