Airport staff bid for new pay plan
TROUBLE APPEARS TO BE brewing between the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) and some of its members employed at the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA).
Well-placed sources have revealed that a petition signed by more than 90 GAIA workers is demanding that the NUPW abandon its efforts to try to get a disputed 3.5 per cent pay increase and instead submit fresh proposals for a new collective agreement.
The union has so far failed to show that workers have a legitimate right to the 3.5 per cent increase that had formed part of a 2011 pay increase.
GAIA management said the NUPW agreed to forgo that part of the wage settlement following a meeting between the NUPW’s then general secretary Dennis Clarke and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart.
