Proposal on pause


Share post:

SIR?ROY?TROTMAN has called for a more attractive separation package for Transport Board employees, who are part of the thousands to be trimmed from the Public Service over the next few weeks.
That call, however, has been put on pause after management of the Transport Board said it could not agree to the severance proposal offered by the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) general secretary at a four-hour meeting at Solidarity House yesterday evening.
Sir Roy said that discussions about making the severance packages more attractive had been put before top Government officials including Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and had received a favourable response.
But the retiring union leader told the media: “In our discussions with various bodies, we have been able to have the levels of inducement which have made the route of severance more attractive than it currently appears to be in the public sector.
