UWI STRAIN

The situation of job losses in Barbados appears to be about to get worse.
While households across the island continue to watch the Government to learn if any of their family members have been included in the more than 3 000 civil servants being sent home, the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) has served notice that it cannot sustain current operations.
Well-placed sources confirmed yesterday that the top brass of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the local chapter of the West Indies Group of University Teachers (WIGUT) have been invited to a meeting with university management this afternoon to discuss the growing problem.
According to one source, the amount of funding available to the campus fell by more than 25 per cent over the past three years and each month Government continued to fall short of its commitment to the institution by several million dollars.
