Port workers off the job
WORKERS AT THE Bridgetown Port are off the job.
It is understood that they left their post since around 8:40 this morning.
They are currently meeting with general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union Toni Moore.
The island’s four largest trade unions have stepped up industrial action in protest of the increase in the controversial National Social Responsibility Levy (NSRL).
On Monday union members were encouraged to work to rule, go slow and quietly protest outside their offices during their lunch hour.
A Whatsapp message has also been making the rounds urging unionised workers to call in sick today and tomorrow. It is not yet known how many workers have heeded this call. (BN)
