24 hours after the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) had threatened to step up industrial action at the Central Bank of Barbados, the dispute has been settled.
Mere hours after taking up their places outside of the Tom Adams Financial Centre this morning, the workers returned to their duties after BWU general secretary Toni Moore announced that management had changed its stance on a controversial appointment, which led to the five-day protest.
Moore informed the employees that she received a letter from the bank indicating that the appointment, which involved the promotion of an intern to a temporary position with a higher salary than some appointed staff had been rescinded.
