BTC employees attended a meeting at BIU headquarters on Union Street at around 12pm last Thursday [June 28], with unofficial sources indicating there may be a disagreement over possible staff redundancies in the future.
Commencing Friday 29th June, some of the employees who are represented by the BIU did not report for work. This continued on Saturday 30th for those scheduled to work on Saturday; and has carried into Monday and today.
BTC CEO Lloyd Fray confirmed this evening that there have been a “large number of absences due to sickness” and that BTC has attempted to resolve this matter through on going discussions with the BIU.
Mr Fray said: “Since Friday June 29, 2012, BTC departments have been affected by a large number of absences due to sickness.
“Whilst we believe that the unusually high number of absences may have been the result of some industrial action, BTC has continued to make every attempt to resolve this matter through on going discussions with Bermuda Industrial Union Officials.
“BTC recognises the impact sickness have on our customers and wishes to apologise for any service interruptions that may have occurred,” concluded Mr Fray.
