By BBN Staff: Yesterday, the staff of the Social Security Board (SSB) Branches countrywide staged an in-office protest by banging on their desks.
The staff of the SSB is represented by the Christian Workers Union (CWU) who shortly thereafter after issued a statement explaining that the workers are concerned about the changes in the pension scheme.
The management of SSB is planning to form a trust cooperation to hold the pension rather than having the pension in the name of trustees.
The CWU informed that they have sent their concerns formally to Chief Executive Officer of SSB, Colin Young.
“The Union wishes that the Management of the institution will respond promptly and effectively to the issues, so that our Members can remove their trepidation and return to serving their workplace in an atmosphere of confidence and content,” a statement from the CWU stated.
In an interview with the media, Young said that the union should have permitted them time to respond since the letter was sent on Friday.
