BWU still building for poor
DESPITE TWO FAILED housing projects, the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) won’t be deterred from providing low-income earners with housing solutions.
The union’s general secretary Toni Moore has maintained that despite the botched North Star and Beautiful Environmental Homes projects at Mangrove, St Philip, the BWU was still pushing ahead with alternative low-income housing solutions.
“The union intends going forward to make well on the original intention of previous executive councils to offer the land that we have as low-income opportunities, primarily to our membership and where our membership doesn’t accept it, then it would go outside of the membership,” she said at the NATION’s Editorial Forum on Thursday.
