Retrenchment across Barbados continued unabated today when 30 workers employed at the Shell Top Rock, Christ Church filling station were given their walking tickets.
When a team from Barbados TODAY visited the filling station, a large truck was parked across the entrance to the filling station while workers with power hoses were seen cleaning the forecourt.
One notice on the glass door informed customers that the minimart was closed for stocktaking and indicated that it will be reopened to business tomorrow, Saturday, February 15.
Meanwhile, there were unconfirmed reports that the management of the filling station was changed without the knowledge of the workers, a development which aroused the ire of some of the employees.
Officials of Pilgrim Business Ventures Inc., the management company which runs the filling station, could not be reached for a comment.
Barbados TODAY has learnt that the service station will be taken over by SOL (Barbados) Ltd at midnight.
