By Aaron Humes: The Christian Workers Union (CWU) has described itself as feeling “hunted and encircled” by Port of Belize Limited.

According to President Evan “Mose” Hyde, the CWU’s good faith efforts and stability since signing the collective bargaining agreement in 2020 have not been reciprocated by the Port.

In response, says Hyde, stevedores have been angered and felt targeted. Earlier, Hyde expressed some regret for not regularly coming forward to the press, stating that they preferred to come only when matters had reached a boiling point.

Hyde appeared with two of the defendants in the court case, as two others were absent, but said they were unable to talk in detail about the court case where they are being sued for millions in damages for the shutdown of the Port in January.

But Hyde made note that the Union does not have the finances to engage in a protracted fight with the Port in court, as that would affect their work with other bargaining units of which they represent 12.

The fact remains that, according to Hyde, there is clearly a targeted campaign against the stevedores, with possible scenarios designed to threaten what remains of their livelihood.

If there is a commitment to maintaining a stable relationship – not necessarily one of love even if that is possible – that would ultimately be good for business for both sides, Hyde concluded, but not if PBL continues its tactics.
