Port workers answer union’s call
THE BARBADOS WORKERS’ UNION has called out one of its big guns in its ongoing dispute with the management of the Barbados Water Authority.
As we speak hundreds of Barbados Port Authority workers are on strike, off the job in solidarity with BWA workers who remain on the picket line at their St Michael Pine headquarters.
General secretary of the BWU, Toni Moore, has addressed the workers and said she was pleased with how quickly they responded to her call out.
She stressed the union would be standing firm in its fight with the management of the BWA and invited people to “stay tuned” for further action.
Workers from the maintenance departments, the marine section, terminal operations, clerical staff, as well as some managers were off the job from as early as 7 a.m. One cruise ship and two cargo vessels were due in this morning. (HLE)
