Operations at the Nation Publishing Company continue to be affected by a reported sick-out of workers in the editorial department.
Barbados TODAY understands reporters are not happy with the terms of new contracts which propose additional duties, including the preparation of broadcast material for merged operations between Starcom Network and the Nation.
Sources said reporters were peeved that they were not being compensated for the additional duties.
Barbados TODAY has also learned that a break down in relations between a news editor and reporters may also have contributed to the reported sick-out.
Efforts to reach senior staff at the Nation for comment were unsuccessful.
