Barbados union, LIME reach agreement over dismissals
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados—The Barbados Workers Union (BWU) has welcomed the agreement reached during the early hours of Saturday with the telecommunications company, Cable and Wireless (Barbados) Ltd, averting a nationwide strike over the dismissal of nearly 100 workers.
BWU general secretary, Sir Roy Trotman, speaking to reporters at the end of a marathon round of talks under the guidance of Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, said while he was pleased with the outcome there is still some work to do. Earlier this month, the telecommunication company operating here under the brand name, LIME, blamed substantial losses and said that it would be outsourcing its retail operations in a bid to improve its financial position.
