Workers employed with Blue Waters St. Lucia Ltd and Food Express Ltd will now be in a position to receive trade union representation.
Two (2) months ago the National Workers Union (NWU) submitted a recognition claim to the Department of Labour on behalf of the said workers. The Department of Labour conducted a Secret Ballot Poll among workers to justify the recognition claim.
Over seventy seven percent (77%) of the employees, among which are Drivers, Salesmen and Porters, voted in favour of having their interest protected by the National Workers Union.
The NWU has since received a Recognition Certificate from the Department of Labour.
