BRA mess


Share post:

April 1 found many Public Service workers racked with uncertainty about their jobs and the new state collection agency mired in controversy.
General secretary of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), which represents the majority of public sector workers, declared that the Public Service had gone mad and he lambasted the Government for treating workers “like cattle” as it carried out job cuts and merged several agencies into one, the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA).
“They are treating people in the worst way possible. It is most unreasonable that workers across the Public Service are being treated in such a way and that is wrong.”
Concerning the BRA, he advised all public officers who work with the Inland Revenue Department, Licensing Authority, Customs & Excise Department, VAT Division and the Land Tax Department to report to their usual workplaces.
