Thursday, October 8th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: Workers of the Social Security Board across the country which have been agitating for advancement on their Collective Bargaining Agreement apparently walked out of their offices and began picketing.
In Belize City sixteen workers did so around three Wednesday afternoon. According to 7 News they have been demanding financial compensation for the 10 month uniform delay but management does not acknowledge or agree with that demand.
SSB Chairman Doug Singh is sticking with his stated position but the workers are equally determined and simply walked out sick today. The Christian Workers’ Union (CWU), negotiating on behalf of the workers, went after Singh in a press release for previous media comments, accusing him of “providing misleading and inaccurate information”.
According to the Union, “the CWU and the SSB workers denounces the recent conduct of the SSB Chairman Doug Singh, who seems intent in raising public sentiments against the workers…the CWU rejects the comments made by the Chairman and considers them to be disingenuous.”
A press conference is scheduled for today, Thursday, at the CWU office.
