Hundreds of public sector workers attend BWU meeting
THE BARBADOS WORKERS’ UNION (BWU) appears to be preparing to up the ante in the current impasse with the Barbados Water Authority (BWA), which has seen workers on strike since last Wednesday.
General secretary of the BWU Toni Moore has already hinted at such, and today she was able to get a response from the wider membership of the union for a midday meeting within hours of sending out the notice.
Public sector workers from the Transport Board, the Bridgetown Port, Customs, The Rural Development Commission, the Urban Development Commission, Barbados Light and Power were just some of the hundreds who joined workers from BWA at Solidarity House for the meeting.
Moore got loud applause from all sections of the room which she declared that “an injury to one is an injury to all”. (YB)
