By Aaron Humes: The resolution promised last week by the Minister of Labour as it related to the stevedores and staff allied to the Christian Workers Union appears to be in jeopardy.

The CWU in a statement says it continues to demand that “the Labour Ministry complies with the July 21, 2021 Agreement,” inter alia, to mediate the negotiations between PBL and the Union on, among other things, the matter of compensation to Stevedores for lost earnings as a result of the decision of the ASR/BSI to relocate its raw sugar export point to the Big Creek Port.

The CWU announced that it and its negotiating team on behalf of the stevedores pressured the National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) to withdraw its participation in the Essential Services Arbitration Tribunal Meeting scheduled for today, September 6, 2021. With the quorum not established, it too walked out.

While thanking its umbrella Union for its support, the CWU leaves unclear where it stands on the matter of settlement by the Tribunal or any settlement at all of the compensation.

We’ll keep following the story.
