TRADE union leader Caswell Franklyn says other unions had five years to settle the problems associated with the planned transfer of Customs workers to the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) but were now “playing catch-up”.

Franklyn told the DAILY NATION yesterday that while his Unity Workers’ Union had only recently been joined by about 40 employees of the Customs & Excise Department, both the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) should have been tackling the transfer issue since 2010.

He said they were now “running around, pretending to do something” for the workers after the Unity had initiated action.
