btlBy Aaron Humes: Employees of Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL) who are also members of the Belize Communication Workers Union (BCWU) were seen meeting at company headquarters on St. Thomas Street, Belize City.

We were informed that the meeting which took place during lunch break, was a form of protest, reportedly against the management of Chair of the Executive Committee, Anwar Barrow.

But no one is talking, either from the Union or from BTL. Unofficially, employees feel that management is not respecting the collective bargaining agreement signed two years ago.

But there is no word on future action and the workers, numbering about 50, returned to work by 1 p.m. Police were also seen in the area.
