We want our jobs back!


Share post:

TWO FORMER SENIOR MANAGERS are fighting the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to get their jobs back after they were made redundant several months ago.

Lorna Mascoll, the former chief financial controller, and Patricia Inniss, the one-time manager of the Waste Water Division, are contending they were unfairly dismissed by the state-owned entity.

They have called on the services of Senator Caswell Franklyn, leader of Unity Workers’ Union, as their representative in discussions with the Labour Department and the BWA.

“If you are going to make people redundant or create posts, you have to go through Ministry of the Civil Service. That hasn’t happened and there was no consultation in respect of either dismissal,” Franklyn told the NATION regarding Mascoll and Inniss.

At this stage, he wants the matter to go before the Employment Rights Tribunal with a view to both women being reinstated.
