RECOVERY & GROWTH OF BARBADOS’ ECONOMY: CTUSAB WANTS TO KNOW WHEN SOCIAL PARTNERSHIP WILL CONVENE?

The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados continues to monitor the debate on the current state of the Barbados economy, and the ongoing developments with respect to the regime of layoffs in the Public Service and Statutory Boards, as Government moves to reduce its fiscal deficit.

CTUSAB understands the nature and extent of the crisis facing the nation at this time, and strongly believes that urgent solutions are needed if the slide being experienced in the economy is to be arrested.

The Congress calls attention to its Press Statement of 19 August, 2013, which was issued in response to Financial Statement and Budgetary Proposals presented by Chris Sinckler, Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, in the House of Assembly, 13 August, 2013.

"The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados has long recognized the challenges to the Barbados economy as it relates to the fiscal deficit and stagnant growth. The Congress has called for these twin areas of our economic matrix to be tackled, lest the pillars on which our economy is built be fatally undermined."

CTUSAB continues to articulate the position that the challenge to stagnant growth must be tackled simultaneously and with equal or more vigour.

To this end, CTUSAB in a letter to the Prime Minister, dated 13 January, 2014, called on him to convene an urgent meeting of the Full Social Partnership, to engage in a national dialogue for the purpose of developing a protocol specifically aimed at Recovery of and Growth in the Barbados economy.

This protocol would require each social partner to specify those actions, approaches, programmes and projects which they are prepared to introduce and agree upon, to engender growth in the economy.
