BWU: Transport Board got it wrong

Social Share

THE BARBADOS WORKERS’ UNION (BWU) isn’t buying what the Transport Board is selling.

General secretary of the BWU, Toni Moore, is taking the transport entity to task for claims made in a large advertisement in the media last Friday, where it was critical of statements she made on May 1, Labour Day, regarding the performance of its quality assurance staff and a perceived privatisation of the state-owned corporation.

In that advertisement, general manager of the Transport Board, Sandra Forde, said the BWU was notified in writing of the infrastructure and systems adopted to ensure and increase bus availability in Barbados. She also defended the tenure of the board’s quality assurance manager, saying the result was an increased daily output of buses.

But Moore is contending that’s not the case and is asking for a long-awaited meeting with the Transport Board to be convened in the soonest possible time. (BA)
