Massy staff down tools
Staff at Massy Distribution are off the job.
More than 30 employees from the warehouse at Spring Garden, St Michael, downed tools earlier this afternoon and gathered on the eastern side of the compound.
Shop steward Anderson Sobers told THE NATION that they were frustrated after salary negotiations broke down.
Sobers, who is also a porter, said they also wanted better working conditions. He complained of heat in the warehouse, which he said needed an industrial cleaning.
The workers are currently meeting with Barbados Workers’ Union representative Dionne Howard.
A skeleton crew is still on the job. (PR/SAT)
