Share post:

The?head of the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) signalled a conciliatory approach after a meeting yesterday with Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler on the planned public sector layoffs.
Following the two-hour meeting at Government Headquarters, CTUSAB president Cedric Murrell told reporters that Sinckler had given them a more in-depth explanation for the cash-short Government’s decision to send home more than 3 000 workers.
“We were very well represented by all of our affiliates and we are on board with regard to seeking to make good as much as we could and ameliorate the situation,” he said.
“All of this is for the good of Barbados and the good of the people of this country. We are faced with a very dire situation and as far as we are concerned in the congress, we have to do what is necessary to ensure that we have a country beyond now.”
Flanked by Mary Redman, president of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union, and CTUSAB’s general secretary Denis De Peiza, Murrell said the grouping was in a better position to discuss the matter today when its executive board meets to decide on a formal response. (MB)
