Barbados Water Authority to cut 75 workers

(Barbados Nation) The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) will be looking to part ways with 75 of its workers before the end of this week.

In a press briefing earlier yesterday, Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) general secretary Toni Moore revealed that the state-owned enterprise was looking to reduce its staff complement by 10 per cent in the first phase of its Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) programme retrenchments.

Meanwhile, Moore indicated that the union would be meeting with BWA workers at Solidarity House on Wednesday at 8 a.m. to discuss relevant matters.

As a result, the BWA has advised customers that its payment centres at The Pine, St Michael and Probyn Street, The City will open at 1 p.m. to accommodate the meeting.
