Normal operations at the Bridgetown Port have resumed.

Chief Executive Officer of Barbados Port Inc. (BPI), David Jean-Marie, explained operations were affected this morning by a brief work stoppage.

“After consultation with their Union Executives, workers returned to their posts at approximately 9 a.m. and normal operations resumed shortly thereafter”, the CEO said.

Barbados Port Inc. apologises for any inconvenience experienced this morning.

BPI further wishes to advise that the Barbados Workers’ Union has scheduled a meeting with workers for Monday, August 20, to further address the issues which were raised this morning. As a result, operations at the Port will start at 10 a.m. on Monday.

The public is therefore advised to arrange business accordingly. (PR)
