By Aaron Humes: The Christian Workers Union and Port of Belize Limited have finally reached an agreement on a collective bargaining agreement for staff members of the Port of Belize Limited.

The agreement was signed on Monday and includes modest pay raises for staff in 2022 and 2023. It will last for three years, after 18 fruitless years of stalemate.

CWU president Evan “Mose” Hyde paid tribute to several of the workers terminated in 2020 who represented the staff in negotiations, saying their fingerprints are all over the result, which he described as fair if not especially bountiful.

And as for the stevedores’ right to fair compensation for the loss of sugar earnings, that matter is back in mediation with the Labour Department after the unions refused to work with the established Labour Tribunal formed months ago.

More on these stories later.
