NUPW blasts tribunal


Share post:

A “MOCKERY” and a “miscarriage of justice”.

That is how the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has described the decision by chairman of the Employment Rights Tribunal, Hal Gollop, to delay judgment in the case of the retrenched workers of the National Conservation Commission (NCC).

Speaking with the media after a joint marathon meeting with the affected workers from the NCC and Beautify Barbados yesterday, acting deputy general secretary of the National Union of Public Workers, Wayne Walrond, had some strong words for Gollop and his team.

“I see it as a mockery of justice. I abhor the position. I see it as derision in terms of looking at what one would accept as proper justice,” he said.
