Workers at the Barbados Investment Development Corporation (BIDC) are off the job again today.
They are protesting management’s decision to send 13 of their colleagues on immediate early retirement.
David Parris, who was Human Resource Manager at the BIDC for the past 15 years, was one of those given walking papers. He described the move as disrespectful.
The National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), which is bargaining against for the workers, has also expressed concerns that the move by the BIDC could have implications for employees at other statutory entities.
It has given management until 12pm Friday to rescind the letters issued to the 13 workers or else it warns that there will be consequences.
