More to be cut
ALMOST 70 Barbados Light & Power (BL&P) employees have grabbed the company’s offer to either retire early or collect severance packages and leave the electricity supplier.

However, BL&P has now told the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the Chief Labour Officer that it wants to send home up to 50 more workers and it wants them out by June 8.
