Caswell: Strike on until Govt meets with us

Until the Government calls a meeting with the Unity Workers’ Union, the industrial action taken by nurses will continue.

General secretary of the union, Senator Caswell Franklyn, said yesterday that Government’s deal with the Barbados Nurses’ Association would not be enough to satisfy the grievances of the nurses on strike.

Franklyn told the DAILY NATION that during a meeting with the nurses on Monday night, it was argued that much of what was disclosed by the Minister of Health The Most Honourable Jeffrey Bostic with regard to the deal was no more than “lip service”.

He said that many of the promises were lacking key details such as implementation timelines. He also said some of the issues had plagued the nursing fraternity for years and therefore more immediacy was needed in addressing them. (CLM)
