Airport talks to resume on Friday after lengthy meetings

Social Share

REPRESENTATIVES OF THE National Union of Public Workers and management of Grantley Adams International Airport Inc. will meet again on Friday with Minister of Labour Senator Dr Esther Byer Suckoo.

This decision comes after they failed to reach an agreement after close to seven hours of deliberations today.

Suckoo met with the GAIA party for just under an hour, and except for a few short breaks she met separately with the NUPW for more than four hours.

The two sides then came together for joint talks around 3:30 p.m.

Suckoo, chief labour officer Vincent Burnett and other senior staff of the Ministry of Labour were also engaged in the discussions.

Talks broke down last Monday when the two sides met with Burnett for close to three hours in an effort to resolve the matter of the 3.5 per cent monies allegedly owed to GAIA staff since 2011. (YB)
