NWU/ Scotia Bank recognition claim at stage two

Press Release:-The Recognition Claim between the Management of Bank of Nova Scotia and the National Workers Union (NWU) has reached Stage Two (2).

Labour Commissioner, Mr. Ray Narcisse has written to the Managing Director of the Bank of Nova Scotia Mr. Elie Bendaly informing the company of the authenticity of the National Workers Union’s claim.

The Commissioner’s letter went on to state that in keeping with section 360 of the Labour Act, the company can either convey its acceptance or doubt.

Should the company hold on to the latter, a secret ballot poll will have to be taken among the workers to verify the NWU’s claim.

The NWU has made good strides within the financial services sector.
