Labour Minister meets with BWU
MINISTER OF LABOUR Senator Dr Esther Byer Suckoo met with officials from the Barbados Workers’ Union for just over an hour today but that meeting does not mean the strike action by the Barbados Water Authority employees will end.
General secretary of the BWU Toni Moore said the action would not be called off simply because the minister had allowed them to state their case.
Speaking to the media from the Parliament Buildings where the talks were held this morning, Moore said the meeting was just to give the minister a chance to hear the BWU’s side and Byer Suckoo did not give any input.
Byer Suckoo declined comment to the media. She is expected to meet with officials of the BWA sometime today. (LK)
