CIRCULAR LETTER:        ALL MEMBERS OF THE BARBADOS WORKERS’ UNION WITHIN THE PUBLIC SECTOR

Dear Comrades,

The Executive Council of The Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) is inviting you to attend one of a series of sessions planned to facilitate discussions on the savings option with employees in the public sector. The proposal, which has been termed the Barbados Optional Savings Scheme (“BOSS”) will outline the role that the public service can play in the national stabilisation response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BWU has agreed with other public sector unions to have the proposal presented in mass sessions on Tuesday, June 2 and Wednesday, June 3, 2020. These meetings are scheduled to take place at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium over the two (2) days and will be co-chaired by the Honourable Mia Amor Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, who is also the Minister responsible for the Public Service.

In observance of the physical distancing protocols, each session will have a capacity of eleven hundred (1,100) people. We have agreed that these sessions will be streamed for the benefit of those public servants who are unable to physically join any of the scheduled meetings.

The sessions have been arranged as follows and details regarding the streaming will be sent as these become available.

While the BOSS proposal may not apply directly to employees of all public institutions, it is still useful for employees of these institutions to understand how they may have preferential access to bonds, should they become available. All employees of public institutions are therefore invited to join us on site at the Gymnasium or via the streaming facility.

To ensure that we adhere to the agreed numbers for physical distancing you are asked where possible to utilise the streaming option. Details of this option will be made available to you in short order.

Notwithstanding these planned sessions, the Executive Council of the BWU remains committed to working through any explanations, clarifications, and refinements of the proposal with you, our constituents. We therefore encourage you to contact us for further discussions or information.

Yours fraternally,

 

Toni Moore

General Secretary
