NUPW national council supports further action
THE NATIONAL UNION of Public Workers has received the nod from its national council to proceed with whatever action is necessary to assist employees of the Customs Department.
President Akanni McDowall told NATION NEWS they have also been given the go-ahead to support those employees who did not want to go over to the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA).
In addition, they will be requesting certain information from the civil service pertaining to the job description, salaries and positions which customs employees amalgamating with the BRA and how this transition will take effect.
The upset employees who instituted a work-to-rule action two weeks ago met with both the Barbados Workers Union and the NUPW this week. The workers are adamant that they will not be going over to the BRA unless all of the temporary officers are appointed. (MB)
