NUPW wants clearer rules on promotions


Share post:

BARBADOS’ PUBLIC SECTOR will continue to lose key personnel unless Government changes the rules on employee advancement.

Acting assistant general secretary of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Wayne Walrond, issued this warning yesterday when he told the media that some “lower echelon” but loyal, committed and competent employees such as cooks, van drivers and servers at the School Meals Department (SMD) could end up losing their temporary jobs because of the rules governing appointments and advancement.

He also charged that “flaws” in the system which kept people acting in senior positions for five years or more and then shattered their “legitimate expectations” for promotion by having them return to the former positions, needed to be corrected because they were causing such “victims” to seek early retirement.
