Sanitation workers on strike
PHASE TWO of the National Union of Public Workers’ (NUPW) industrial action is in effect.
The NUPW today called out its strongest arm, the Sanitation Service Authority, which includes garbage collectors and soil technicians.
As a result, there will be no collection of garbage or burials.
NUPW president Akanni McDowall says this will be in effect for the remainder of the week, in the first instance.
On Monday, 5000 people, including public sector workers, joined officials from the NUPW, Barbados Workers Union and other trade union officials in a march around Bridgetown protesting against Government.
They say the trade union movement has been disrespected and is under threat across the world. (MB)
