A solution appears in sight to the bitter dispute over the contentious layoffs of 200 workers at the National Conservation Commission(NCC).
Word of this from Deputy General Secretary of the Barbados Workers Union, Dwaine Paul this morning, as his union and the National Union of Public Workers summoned NCC workers to a meeting to update them on talks with Acting Labour Minister Senator Maxine McClean last evening.
Paul tells Barbados TODAY, based on the outcome of that meeting, he’s expecting the matter to be settled by weekend.
He said Minister McClean was able to extract from the parties involved their grievances and at the end she recognised there was a breach in the industrial relations process.
McClean is expected to present a report on the meeting to Cabinet today.
