NUGFW elections pushed back to October

The National Union of Government & Federated Workers's (NUGFW's) National Executive Council elections will be held on October 28th, when they are constitutionally due.

The election was scheduled to take place today but President General James Lambert said it didn’t take place because the opposing side, Team Shield, served him with a pre-action protocol letter stating that the election was unconstitutionally brought forward.

Lambert said that was incorrect and that his team, Team Faithful, followed all protocols before advancing the date.  

Carib workers settle wage negotiations with NUGFW

The management of Caribbean Development Company (CDC) and Carib Brewery Limited (CBL) have reached agreements with the National Union of Government and Federated Workers (NUGFW) for periods spanning 2013 and 2019.

For the period 2013 to 2016, CDC has agreed to withdraw an appeal in the Industrial Court against a former judgement, therefore this period has been resolved at 16 percent.

CBL says it will also honour the judgement given for the CBL monthly paid bargaining unit for the period 2011-2015 which was awarded at 13 percent.
