Supervisors employed with the Saint Lucia Civil Service Cooperative Credit Union will now be in a position to receive trade union representation.
A few months ago the National Workers Union (NWU) submitted a recognition claim to the Ministry of Labour on behalf of the Supervisors. Management of the Credit Union has since written the Department of Labour conveying their willingness to respect the right of its employees to freedom of association.
Since the required documentation provided by the NWU had met with the satisfaction of the Department of Labour, the Department of Labour has since granted a Trade Union Recognition Certificate to the NWU as the exclusive representative of the said workers.
The NWU now has membership in five financial institutions on the island.
