Fahy sends quarry workers’ dispute to tribunal

Home Affairs Minister Michael Fahy has referred the labour dispute involving workers at the Government quarry to the Labour Disputes Tribunal.

In a statement released tonight, Senator Fahy, who is the Minister responsible for labour, said: “After meeting with both parties, the Minister has determined pursuant to Section 4 of the Labour Disputes Act 1992, that a labour dispute exists between the Ministry of Public Works, Department of Works & Engineering and the Department of Works & Engineering Division of the Bermuda Industrial Union.

“Accordingly the Minister has referred the said dispute for settlement to the Labour Disputes Tribunal.”

The dispute, which involved dozens of workers downing tools this week, occurred after a worker was suspended for three weeks after driving a Government vehicle home from work.
