Picketers vow to continue
UNIONISED WORKERS at the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) remained off the job for a third consecutive day yesterday.
And they have vowed to remain on the picket line until their demands are met.
The scores of chanting workers, carrying placards proclaiming Get it right or we will fight, Equal under God and before the Law and Respect the industrial relations process, were drawn from every department of the statutory corporation. Chanting slogans under the watchful eye of two lawmen, some of the protesting workers heckled their co-workers who were driving in and out of the Pine, St Michael headquarters.
Head of the BWA’s Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) division Carl Boyce declined to speak to the SATURDAY SUN but told his colleagues that while they would be taking a short breather from their circuit outside the BWA’s headquarters, their fight would continue. (HLE)
