CBC to pay
IT MAY HAVE TAKEN a ten-hour-long meeting between the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), but the final verdict is in.
CBC has to pay up.
After seven days of strike action over claims of the state-run corporation reneging on an increments agreement between it and the union, the showdown began around 10 a.m. at CBC’s Pine, St Michael offices yesterday.
According to the BWU, CBC had agreed to pay a series of four increments to all its workers during discussions in August. However, this was challenged by CBC’s management.
