BIU updates members on talks to replace 2018 contract
Most public services froze for two hours yesterday morning, but that only mirrored Government blue collar workers’ wages, which have not increased for four years, the leader of the Bermuda Industrial Union said.
Chris Furbert, the president of the BIU, said hundreds of public transport, postal and sanitation workers met at St Paul Centennial Hall in Hamilton to be updated on nine months of talks on a contract to replace the one that officially expired in December 2018.
Mr Furbert refused to comment on the specifics of the discussions but said the union would be communicating with the Government on its results.
The meeting caused public transport and postal services, as well as some garbage collection, to come to a standstill between 10.30am and 12.30pm.
