Jada workers say ‘pay cut’ not fair


Share post:

A TIME BOMB APPEARS to be ticking on the Jada Group of Companies and the multimillion-dollar extension at Sandals Resorts stands to be one of the major projects to be affected.

Aggrieved workers from several of the companies met at the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) headquarters for more than two hours yesterday evening, and at the end of it deputy general secretary of the BWU, Dwaine Paul, told reporters “enough is enough”.

The director of industrial relations said the presentations at the meeting were clear contradictions to statements made by human resources manager for Jada, Paul Lewis, and that the workers demonstrated in written communication and other forms that the company had reduced their pay

Workers from across the group, some of whom are on layoff or would have been for short periods in recent times, are protesting against a new incentive system the company recently introduced, and Paul said it was “disadvantageous” to the workers. (YB)
