The Barbados Nurses Association (BNA) is sticking with the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) as civil servants continue their push for increased wages.
“The BNA’s position is to continue to sit at the bargaining table under the umbrella body of CTUSAB where they are negotiating for increased salaries and improved working conditions for nurses,” President Joannah Waterman told Barbados TODAY.
Waterman said nurses are “low paid” and their salaries have been stagnant since 2009.
The BNA’s statement comes against the backdrop of the recent call by top officials of the island’s largest public sector trade union, the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) for a two-day national shutdown, aimed at getting Government to accede to its pay demands.
The NUPW’s membership failed to answer the protest call.
