G4S workers take action
Some security officers at G4S Secure Solutions (Barbados) are off the job.
Fed up with the lack of progress in protracted negotiations with management, they assembled outside the company’s offices at Brighton, St Michael, this morning.
In today’s edition of the Daily Nation, president of the G4S division of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), Ormond Mayers, said among the issues were lack of vacation pay, difficulty in getting annual vacation and no salary increases for the past seven years.
Mayers said a meeting between management and workers scheduled for November 12 was called off after the former failed to come up with a new wage proposal.
The company employs over 300 security officers. (SAT)
