The Management of LIAT (1974) Ltd. and the National Workers Union (NWU) have signed a new industrial agreement.
Workers will receive an overall upward adjustment in their current wage structure along with an expansion of the wage scale. In addition they will benefit from a twelve (12) months back pay, as well as increases of 18% in Shift, Laundry and Breakfast Allowances.
Negotiations had been ongoing for more than a year until a final agreement. Representing the National Workers Union were Tyrone Maynard (President General) and George Goddard (Secretary General). LIAT signatories were Gail Bullen (HR Director), and Josse Mesmain (Station Manager).
This new industrial agreement will be for a period of three (3) years.
