UP TO LATE LAST NIGHT there was still no agreement between the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and telecommunications company LIME after marathon talks lasting close to seven hours with Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer-Suckoo aimed at brokering a wages agreement.
“Talks have been suspended until Thursday when both parties will return to the table,” said the minister.
There was a flurry of activity as both parties gathered shortly after 4 p.m. yesterday under the chairmanship of the Minister of Labour.
The BWU had been asking for a 17 per cent increase for LIME workers, while the telecommunications giant last night changed its position to 7.5 per cent.
Sir Roy Trotman, general secretary of the BWU, expressed disappointment that an agreement had not been reached.
