Not a word


Share post:

Two days after Government confirmed 3 000 public officers would lose their jobs next year, National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) officials remain tight-lipped on their response.
The NUPW and other labour unions were warned yesterday by the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) to come to the workers’ defence as the party expressed fears that its supporters might be targeted for dismissal.
Top NUPW?officials held an emergency session yesterday to discuss Friday’s announcement by Government, but general secretary Dennis Clarke and president Walter Maloney were both adamant that they had nothing to say when they emerged from the two-hour meeting with the executive body at NUPW’s Dalkeith, St Michael headquarters.
“I can’t say anything to you about the meeting. I can’t say a word,” Clarke said, as he and other members shunned a SUNDAY?SUN team.
