NUPW wants IMF details

Social Share

With some public sector workers expected to lose their jobs, the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) is pushing for details of Government’s agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The Barbados Private Sector Association (BPSA), while deeming the IMF deal to be “good news”, wants the authorities to “immediately” address key issues, including cutting Government expenditure and reducing red tape so businesses can boost the economy.

These were the immediate reactions on Tuesday from NUPW president Akanni McDowall and the BPSA’s new chairman Edward Clarke.

McDowall told THE NATION that the NUPW heard of the IMF approval of the Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) plan, but said the union needed more information from the Ministry of Civil Service. (SC)
