CXC to retract advertisements

Social Share

After a marathon day of negotiations, the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) has agreed to retract the 20 vacancies it advertised while in talks with the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) about restructuring.

Late tonight, BWU general secretary Senator Toni Moore told the media about the reversal, which would set the table for talks to resume in good faith.

The two parties met at 11 a.m. at the Ministry of Labour, Warrens Tower, St Michael and that meeting was adjourned by the Chief Labour Officer Victor Felix around 4:27 p.m.

Talks resumed around 6 p.m. and ended at 11:25 p.m.

Staff were reported to be on sickout early this week and then about 50 downed tools and gathered in the carpark at CXC’s Pine, St Michael, office on Thursday. (SB)
