Apes Hill workers unhappy
INDUSTRIAL ACTION that could cripple the country’s vital tourism sector may be looming, after an impasse between the upscale market Apes Hill Club and its employees remained unsettled yesterday.
Just over 40 members of the Apes Hill’s maintenance department were locked out yesterday, after which their representative, the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) claimed the employers were refusing to recognise the union.
Deputy general secretary of the BWU, Dwaine Paul, then hinted that a meeting of the BWU’s executive council would determine if members in the tourism sector should be called out in solidarity with the Apes Hill workers.
“When the workers said this morning they were having problems with the company not meeting with the union, they were ordered to exit the compound.”
