CTUSAB sounds alarm over exclusion


Share post:

The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) is concerned about reports it is receiving about “issues of high-handed management practices, procedural irregularities and allegations of micro management at the level of boards of management of public secondary schools and state-owned enterprises”.

General secretary Dennis Depeiza said concerns were raised by some of its representatives appointed to serve as members on the boards of management and boards of directors.

“CTUSAB is worried about the developing trend where its representatives on boards of management of public secondary schools and on state-owned enterprises are being excluded from attending meetings of the human resources committee of the board, which has the responsibility for such matters as recruitment, hiring, interviews and appointments.

“The situation is even more appalling, as in the case of one state-owned enterprise, the Congress’ representative was removed as a member from all of the standing committees of the board,” it said in a press release. (PR/CM)
