BWA workers will have to wait for pay


Share post:

BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY (BWA) workers have yet to receive back pay, an issue that led to industrial action in March. And the full amount will take months to be paid.

At a two-hour meeting yesterday evening at Solidarity House, scores of employees were informed that the full payment, preliminarily estimated at $17 million, could be expected by the end of November.

General secretary Toni Moore was clear that the Ministry of Finance was not responsible for the fact that none of the payments had been made to date.

Rather, she said, the union and the BWA management were ironing out issues relating to data to ensure there was agreement on the amount outstanding to each worker. (Willcomm)
