Airport workers to get increase owed
STAFF AT Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) should know sometime today whether they will be getting their backpay.
President of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Akanni McDowall, told the DAILY NATION general secretary Roslyn Smith and treasurer Asokore Beckles spearheaded discussions with the GAIA late last year and the current management had agreed to pay workers the remaining 3.5 per cent salary increase owed them from a previous agreement, for the 2009 and 2010 period.
“We left that meeting with the understanding that all outstanding monies would be paid,” he said.
“The outstanding money don’t only speak to 2009 and 2010, it speaks about a five-year period going back to 2010 that those workers would have been owed money.” (YB)
