More than 80 former workers of the Ministry of Transport, Works and Maintenance (MTW) could soon receive their severance money.
At least this is what assistant general secretary of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Wayne Walrond, has been told.
“The NUPW has written the Ministry of Civil Service more than once about the status of this matter and the Government has agreed to advance the gratuity. The ministry has assured us that they are working assiduously to have this matter completed, so hopefully sometime soon these workers should be compensated,” Walrond told the Saturday Sun.
Last October when Government rolled out the Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) programme, MTW was one of the first organisations whose employees were sent packing. (TG)
