President of the Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers (BARJAM) Emmanuel Joseph who has been helping to mediate on behalf of the former CBC employees, stated this today while giving an update on the non-payment of pensions to the staff who had been sent home as part of Government’s restructuring programme last year.

“My investigations have revealed that the CBC and the Ministry responsible for CBC are continuing to work on having the money paid as soon as possible, but that a lack of clarity on some legal aspects, has been delaying reaching common ground,” said Joseph.

The BARJAM president said even though he is concerned about the delay in paying the former media workers, he has been assured that every effort is being made to bring a satisfactory end to this “painful” wait.

“I think it would be wise to allow the process time to work, once we are satisfied that such opportunity is not being used as a licence for the decision-makers to drag their feet,” the BARJAM head stated.
