LABOUR WILL BE in major focus this week when three workers’ unions meet with separate entities.

Two outstanding matters spanning several years will be on the table tomorrow when the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) sit down for discussions with the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) and the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, respectively.

The matter of increments for BWA staff has been on the table for the last six years, and discussions were said to be at a “delicate stage” when the two parties met in November.

Following that marathon meeting, senior assistant general secretary Orlando “Gabby” Scott told reporters the workers left with a good feeling.
