Barbados Tourism anxious on the climate of the industry

Tourism BarbadosRecently, the state agency has requested to get a relief from the trade unions. It’s responsible for marketing the island as a key tourist destination to the outsiders. This move has begun industrial action in an offer to force the Freundel Stuart administration to provide workers relieve from the taxing National Social Responsibility Levy (NSRL).

The Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc (BTMI) is urging the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU), the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) to stride cautiously; or else they have the possibility to “cut the branch on which you are standing”.

The NUPW, with the aid from different sister unions, has prearranged its members to get extremely noticeable, as the labour movement adds to pressurize on Stuart in order to lessen the NSRL by 50 percent, or else provide the workers some type of financial support in order to assist them so that they manage and handle the austerity of Budget which was approved last month.

As a result of this, many unionized workers at the Bridgetown Port, Customs and the Transport Board are calling in sick, creating disorder in the normal flow of business.
