Chief executive officer (CEO) of the Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC), Shawn Tudor, has been given his walking papers.
It is understood that Tudor, the brother of defeated Democratic Labour Party candidate Kim Tudor, was informed on Wednesday that his contract with the BADMC was terminated with immediate effect.
His sacking comes mere weeks after Tudor expressed his shock to the media that more than a quarter of the workers at the corporation had been laid off. He also claimed his signature was attached to more than 60 letters of retrenchment for workers without his knowledge or say-so.
In the termination letter dated November 20 and signed by board chairman and former Government minister Anthony Wood, a copy of which was obtained by the DAILY NATION, it charged that Tudor had committed four acts of “gross/major misconduct” in breach of the corporation’s policies and procedures manual.
