BTA top guns may go home


Share post:

Barbados’ tourism seems set to go forward without the two top administrators at the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA).
There were reports yesterday that the Authority’s acting president and chief executive officer Urban Cumberbatch and his acting deputy Averil Byer had already been advised by the board’s chairman Adrian Elcock that they would be sent on early retirement.
A source also told the Weekend Nation last night that 11 employees  from various departments of the authority were likely to be going home, some of them through early retirement, though  these members  of staff had not yet received the relevant correspondence from the BTA’s board. It is understood the separations are going to be from departments such as product integration, sports and marketing.
Members of the BTA’s division of the Barbados  Workers’ Union  were apprised of circumstances  associated with the authority’s  intended action  by the union’s deputy general secretary Toni Moore during a late afternoon meeting at Solidarity House.
