THE NATIONAL Union of Public Workers (NUPW) is saying a resounding no to privatisation in any form or fashion, not only of the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA), but also of the Transport Board and the Barbados Water Authority.

“We will never agree to privatisation of the SSA, and we feel the same way about the Transport Board and the Barbados Water Authority,” general secretary Roslyn Smith told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday.

Smith’s comments came a few hours after general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) Toni Moore, sided with the NUPW in slamming the decision to contract private haulers to help collect refuse across the country in a $3.3 million project which started last week.

“We are in full agreement with the BWU. We are in this together and feel the same way and will defend our position,” Smith added. (BA)
