THE IMPASSE between the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) and the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) may soon be settled.

Acting assistant general secretary of the union, Wayne Walrond, said yesterday they had moved closer to having a signed collective agreement.

He told the DAILY NATION that the NUPW had “cordial” and “fruitful” discussions at a recent meeting held with Revenue Commissioner Margaret Sivers and he was hopeful the agreement should soon be completed “once the necessary amendments are made”.

“The NUPW is also waiting on a response from the relevant authorities to have requested amendments made under Section 10 of the Barbados Revenue Authority regulations. The amendments seek to ensure that officers who accept an offer of employment with the BRA will enjoy pension provisions that are no less than those they enjoy in the Public Service,” he added. (BA)
