THE ISLAND’s four major trade unions are steppin up their actions. 

With Government having failed to adhere to the requests of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) and the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) to at least reduce the National Social Responsibility Levy (NSRL) to five per cent, the trade unions indicated yesterday they will be moving on to Plan B.

On Tuesday, the trade unions marched from Queen’s Park to Parliament, their first stage of action against a decision by Government to increase the NSRL from two to ten per cent.

During that march, they gave Government 48 hours to agree to their requests, while promising further action if they were not met. (RB)
