At odds once more
THE NATIONAL Union of Public Workers (NUPW) was busy yesterday evening preparing a response to the comments made by Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer when they were forced to evacuate their headquarters as a result of a suspicious package that was delivered there.
As a result, president Akanni McDowall told the DAILY NATION the statement would be issued to the media this morning instead.
He added that the NUPW had also summoned its members to a meeting at 2 p.m. to update them about the matter involving the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC).
On Tuesday evening the stand-off between the two entities seemed settled when the NUPW held a news conference to announce that it had accepted a proposal from the BIDC to re-employ the ten staffers who were forced into early retirement.
