By BBN Staff: The University of Belize Faculty and Staff Union ( UBFSU) issued a statement saying that it joins the National Trade Union Congress of Belize in rejecting the Labour (Amendment) Bill 2020.

“It is our view that the Bill is generally stacked against the employee and in favour of the employer. This cannot stand.  At this time, in the midst of a global pandemic when employees throughout the country are particularly vulnerable, the UBFSU implores the Government of Belize to refrain from taking any action that will erode employees’ legal rights and further destabilize their job security,” the union explained.

The UBFSU says that sections of the bill that afford employers broad discretionary powers threaten to do just that. 

The UBFSU reiterates that it rejects the Bill in its current form and calls on the Government to proceed no further without carrying out proper consultation with the social partners through the Labour Advisory Board.  “Employees’ lives matter!”
