19 workers at the Barbados Light & Power Company received their walking papers this morning.
The cuts affected workers in the professional, supervisory and engineering groups.
The workers were informed at one-on-one meetings with management.
Human Resources Manager at Light and Power Roger Babooram said the specific roles were eliminated as part of a cost cutting exercise to make the company more efficient.
Just yesterday, the power company and the Barbados Workers Union held intense closed-door talks with Chief Labour Officer, Victor Felix on the restructuring process.
But the two sides emerged admitting there were still major differences on several matters including severance pay.
