CXC staff demand removal of want ad
Protesting workers at the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) say management has failed the basic test to get them back to work, so they will continue industrial action today.
The workers, who downed tools yesterday, are demanding that the regional body withdraw immediately several job listings posted on its website.
They argued that with negotiations ongoing over restructuring with the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), it was “disrespectful” that some of the “vacancies” listed were currently filled.
However, up to yesterday, the advertisement remained. (TG)
