By Aaron Humes: The loss of 25 employees at the Belmopan City Council felt like an ambush, Christian Workers Union (CWU) President Evan “Mose” Hyde told reporters today.
18 of those let go are CWU members. Each received a letter stating they would be sent on accrued vacation time after which they would be let go.
But Hyde told us this is not according to the Labour Act, which provides for the development of a redundancy plan that must be shared with the bargaining agent and the Labour Commissioner.
That plan, said Hyde, must establish the reasons for the redundancies. The Council promised a plan at a June 23 meeting but it will not be ready until later this month.
The Union was not even copied of the letters to employees, which they had to send personally to the Union.
