Over fifty (50) clerical, sales agents and other auxiliary workers employed with Food Express Ltd and Blue Waters (St. Lucia) Ltd. have joined the National Workers Union (NWU). As a result the NWU has submitted two (2) recognition applications to Mr. Ray Narcisse, Labour Commissioner on behalf of the said workers.
The National Workers Union (NWU) in its application also included all the relevant documentation that would facilitate a speedy determination of the process.
It is expected that a secret ballot will be held in keeping with the Labour Legislation of Saint Lucia. The process will reveal whether the NWU becomes the bargaining representative for these employees or not.
