Sir Roy: Say sorry and rehire
FORMER GENERAL SECRETARY of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), Sir Roy Trotman, has two main demands on behalf of the severed workers of the National Conservation Commission (NCC).
During his close to 90-minute submission when the Employment Rights Tribunal resumed its hearing yesterday, he called for the workers to be rehired, and an apology given.
“You ask me what I want? I want the people to get back their work and the proper process to be followed; and the Government and the NCC to apologise,” he said in response to NCC counsel Mitch Codrington.
Just over two years after 194 workers were sent home from the NCC, Sir Roy said the last in, first out rule, which was written into the last memorandum of understanding with the NCC, was not followed. (YB)
