Call to help jobless

Deputy General Secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) Dwaine Paul has reminded the public to remember the sacrificial role played by those civil servants who have been retrenched.

And with this in mind, Paul has urged society to come to their aid during their time of difficulty as more workers could go home in the next phase of the Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) programme.

“These are people who have been selected by a system that looks simply at the date they were hired and they have committed no offence in their workplaces or otherwise,” Paul said on Tuesday before a meeting with Barbados Agricultural Management Company (BAMC) workers at Solidarity House.

“So, I would really like people to understand that these workers who are being sacrificed are being sacrificed for every single Bajan on this rock,” he added. (AD)
