Time for a fresh approach to the Social Partnership arrangement.
That’s the word from former deputy general secretary of the Barbados Workers Union, Robert ‘Bobby’ Morris, who says it’s not just a matter of having government, trade unions and employers signing a protocol.
He was reacting last evening to a declaration by the Barbados Employers’ Confederation that it will not support the proposed extension of Protocol VI of the Social Partnership.
Morris insists that the focus needs to be on making the agreement a real and substantive partnership.
