Short tempers

THEY VENTED THEIR anger, they dismissed their workers’ union and some even refused to take their severance cheques.

This was the drama that unfolded outside the Transport Board’s Weymouth headquarters yesterday as former employees left no doubt about how they felt at being offered only a fraction of the severance pay owed them after they were sent home in February.

And in a letter to the general manager of the board, copied to shop stewards and workers, a copy of which was obtained by the Weekend Nation, general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union Sir Roy Trotman urged the board to make good on outstanding payments by September 10.

“The BWU is insistent that the money should have been paid within two months of the separation of the workers. The BWU again reiterates that you should endeavour, by a loan extension, to obtain the full severance payment entitlement of all the workers and to make good that payment on or before September 10, 2014,” the letter stated.
