By BBN Staff: Today, the National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) issued a statement calling out the Belize City Council accusing it of union busting.
The release says that the NTUCB is aware that the Christian Workers Union (CWU) has been seeking to represent its membership in Belize City and their efforts have been met with “disregard” and “disrespect”.
The congress deems such actions as union busting and says that it will not stand by and allow one of its affiliates to suffer those actions by any entity.
The congress calls on Belize City’s Mayor, Bernard Wagner and the Belize City Council to cease and desist from such actions.
The congress reminds Wagner that it is the right of any worker to have union representation.
The NTUCB warns that if the actions continue, they will be forced to intervene on behalf of the CWU.
The NTUCB looks forward to resolving these issues with the council and the union.
