Accessory you won’t see Labor Minister soon using? Choker!
IN A NEW TWIST, Minister of Labour Senator Dr Esther Byer says the island’s two trade unions have misrepresented the offer which was put on the table yesterday.
In a statement issued today, Dr Byer says the Barbados Investment & Development Corporation (BIDC) had not withdrawn the letters to the ten workers under dispute, nor would they be returning to work.
Further, she said there was an agreement there would be no statement to the media until the final agreement had been hammered out. However, the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) and the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) held a joint press conference without informing her, as chairman of the meeting, what decision they had taken.
