The Barbados Workers’ Union, the union representing the 97 LIME workers sacked on Wednesday wants their termination letters immediately withdrawn and an apology made by managing director Alex McDonald for “unfair” comments on the workers’ performance.
Immediately following a BWU meeting with LIME staff at Solidarity House this morning, BWU general secretary Sir Roy Trotman made the requests via a formal letter to McDonald and a press briefing.
He said LIME’s dismissal of retail and back-office staff with immediate effect late yesterday had contravened the terms of the collective agreement as well as both sides’ commitment to Minister of Labour Esther Byer-Suckoo.
The commitment was that neither the union nor company could or should take industrial action with discussions ongoing.
