NCC layoffs start tomorrow


Share post:

NEARLY 200 EMPLOYEES of the National Conservation Commission (NCC) will part company with that organisation tomorrow.
Throughout the day, employees at several work sites across the country received letters consisting of two sentences inviting them to a meeting with general manager Keith Neblett at the commission’s headquarters at Codrington House, St Michael, and to be punctual.
The letters were handed out by their supervisors.
Reportedly 194 of the NCC’s approximately 900 workers are expected to be retrenched.
That number was arrived at after a meeting between the NCC and general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), Sir Roy Trotman, last week.
After that meeting, Sir Roy said the union had been able to save more than 50 jobs through negotiations.
The job cuts are part of the government’s mandatory redundancies across the public sector. (SP)
