Belco staff discuss industrial action
Belco staff held an emergency meeting to discuss the prospect of industrial action yesterday morning, The Royal Gazette understands.
Workers were said to have opposed the possible dismissal of a senior member of staff.
All staff were on the job as of noon, and a spokeswoman for Ascendant Group issued a statement that no action was taking place at the utility company.
The statement added: “An employee meeting was held this morning, following which employees returned to work. As a matter of policy, Belco does not comment on internal matters.”
It comes after a long night for Belco staff, with hundreds of homes losing power during the winter storm that passed with hurricane-force gusts to the island’s north.
