No word yet on effect of go-slow
A GO-SLOW BY customs and immigration officers represented by the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) at this country’s two ports of entry started yesterday, but the effects are yet to be known.
The Bridgetown Port held its annual Port Day at the Harbour Road facility yesterday, and the facility’s divisional manager for corporate development, Kenneth Atherley, revealed things were quite normal.
“The Port is always open for business,” he told the media. “The smooth operation of the Port is ensured through cooperation of many different agencies, and at a time like this we are keeping communication open and looking at our operations every hour,” he added.
Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy was also at the facility for yesterday’s event, but opted not to comment on the NUPW’s industrial action. “I prefer not to comment on it, or form an opinion. I need more information,” the minister said. (BA)
