BWU meets shop stewards to discuss G4S pay cuts
GENERAL SECRETARY of the Barbados Worker’s Union (BWU) Toni Moore this morning chaired a strategic meeting with shop stewards of the G4S Secure Solutions Barbados, to discuss concerns over workers’ wages being cut.
Moore said G4S informed the BWU last week of its decision to cut the weekly wages of staff and issued options forms to workers to either take the pay cut or not.
She said they had been negotiating with the company when the proposal was submitted, but it was rejected by the Union.
A second meeting with G4S stewards is scheduled for 5 p.m.
Moore said BWU industrial relations officers were also meeting with Massy Stores officials. She pointed out it was not a negotiations meeting, but one to put forward a new matter, the details of which the BWU have not been made aware.
The general secretary said she would be able to speak more to the Massy Stores meeting after its conclusion. (LK)
