NUPW threat


Share post:

The National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has thrown down the gauntlet.

If the Barbados Community College (BCC) fails to meet with the union no later than Monday, then expect strike action the next day.

“I give the [BCC] until Monday, if we don’t get into some sort of arrangement to restore these issues, then we will have a demonstration starting Tuesday,” a fired up NUPW general secretary Dennis Clarke told the WEEKEND NATION last night, minutes after getting the green light from the union’s executive council to proceed with strike action.

Clarke said the union had exhausted all attempts to have BCC’s management deal with several issues affecting the 400-odd staff members, ranging from tutors and part-time tutors to ancillary workers.

The union boss said the NUPW had outlined its concerns to BCC staff during a heated meeting held yesterday at the tertiary institution’s headquarters at Howell’s Cross Road, St Michael.
