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