One more shot
THE TOP BRASS of the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC) will meet this morning to determine if there is anything more they can do to avert the national shutdown threatened by the unions.
This was revealed yesterday by Minister of Industry Donville Inniss, who said that while labour officials were saying their action was now about more than just the BIDC situation, he was still inclined to treat it as a BIDC affair and would therefore continue to work toward a resolution.
He promised that if there was clear evidence the state agency was in breach of the law, then they would act immediately to correct the situation.
“As Minister of Industry, I remain extremely concerned with the possibility of major industrial action on the part of the labour movement in Barbados and its likely negative impact upon our fragile economy. As such I will continue to make every effort to avert a major strike at this time,” Inniss said. (RRM)
