‘Fewer than 80’ to go at Massy


Share post:

FEWER THAN 80 employees will be made redundant by Massy Stores later this month.

That number represents less than half of the number originally believed to have been heading for the breadline.

In addition, Massy will soon be opening a discount-style store somewhere in the region of Sargeant’s Village, Christ Church, after the closure of JB’s Mastermart.

After an almost two-hour meeting with workers yesterday, former Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) general secretary and special adviser Sir Roy Trotman said the company and the union had agreed on closure dates for JB’s, but he preferred that information to come directly from the employer.

After the closure, workers would be transferred to take up positions throughout the Massy chain.
