By Aaron Humes: At this hour following a vote, stevedores at Port of Belize Limited have ended their eight-day strike from work.

The Christian Workers Union (CWU), in a statement, declared it was “satisfied” with the ruling of the Essential Services Arbitration Tribunal on Thursday, January 27, which among other things ordered the Port of Belize Limited management to begin negotiations for recompensing stevedores made redundant by the reduction in sugar operations.

The CWU said it “hereby respectfully appeals to the Receivership Management at PBL to comply with the ruling and engage with us on the outstanding matters that could be potential stumbling blocks in our relationship. We call on all the voices who have been so vocal in questioning the legitimacy of our claims and the stand that we have taken, to now join us in appealing to PBL.”

Separately, the Union said it was meeting with Government of Belize representatives (GOB) on a reported offer to our Members, in light of reconciling the issues and hardships caused to our members by the Port’s privatization, “The CWU has indicated to GOB our willingness in further negotiate identifiable issues that need to be remedied to ensure that industrial relationship at the Port is stabilized. There is a way to go before we can classify as such, but we are publicly committing to that effort,” it concluded.

The end of the action does not necessarily prevent losses to businesses both in export and import who spent days waiting, some in vain, for needed replenishment of goods and equipment.
