BIU Timeline On Government Legislation

August 28, 2021

The Bermuda Industrial Union [BIU] has released one page document — with the header “A brief history of how Government has used the law in an attempt to cripple the union and restrict the rights of union workers” — showing a timeline of legislation and their comments on the impact.

This comes as the BIU has called for a two day work stoppage of non-essential services starting this Monday [Aug 30] in protest of the latest legislation, which the Government has said they have “no intention” of amending, with the Government also stating that “as there is no labour dispute any action taken, including any proposed work stoppage or strike is unlawful,”

The full timeline follows below [PDF here]:

    wow. The biu is really trying to get the public on their side with all these press releases and docs. Too bad the facts dont support them. Numpties. We need to demand their financials which they havent filed in a decade in breach of the law. Why? What are they hiding?

    Go away. You are bad for Bermuda and we are tired of you.

    When is Furbert up for re-election?

  5. Vote for Me says:

    To be consistent the 2021 bullet should summarize what the new Consolidation Act does. One change that is a significant financial benefit to the union is that all workers must now pay at least 50% of their dues to the BIU. In the past, they had the option of making the payment to a charity.

    Is is also interesting to note that both the Government and BPSU have stated that the current policy on who can vote on decertification is consistent with the International Labor Organization (ILO) guidelines.

    It is very interesting how the BIU is so blatantly trying to highlight the former
    UBP party. Isn’t that what the PLP/BIU/People Campaign were suppose to change when the PLP got voted in. More things change the more they stay the same. And guess what else ” some of those same UBP members that was in Parliament than is still in Parliament, but now as PLP members”.

    More strikes to come if this is not resolved soon.
