Scores of Barbadians will find employment at a new LIME contact centre that’s officially opening here early next week.
Well informed sources disclosed that 54 people have been identified to work at the centre, located on the Harbour Road.
The sources said more than 40 employees are already in place and taking calls.
The telecommuncations company had closed down its contact centre in Barbados some time ago, citing economic considerations and a streamlining of operations as factors. The closure also sparked a long standing industrial dispute between LIME and the Barbados Workers Union, with the company promising to re-open a centre.
Neither General Secretary of the BWU, Sir Roy Trotman nor his deputy, Julian Hunte was available for comment.
The Barbados outlet would join three others in the LIME network, including one that formally opened in Montego Bay, Jamaica yesterday.†That one is expected to create about 180 jobs in the coming weeks. (EJ)†
