Video: BIU Bus Division Press Conference

September 27, 2021 | 4 Comments

The Bus Division of the Bermuda Industrial Union [BIU] is holding a press conference this morning [Sept 27], and the live video is below.

This comes as the bus service remains suspended, as it has been since September 17th. Last week the BIU sent a letter [PDF] to management stating, “Employers have an obligation to take all reasonable care in the circumstances to protect the health and safety of employees under the occupational safety and health legislation. ”

Last night the Government said they “implemented a contingency plan to provide public transportation services” and have “asked licensed minibuses to provide an alternative means of providing transportation.”

Minister of Transport Lawrence Scott is also scheduled to hold a press conference today, which we also plan to stream, and that is scheduled for 4.00pm.

Update: The live broadcast has concluded and the 43-minute replay is below

    You do not deserve pay for your “stoppage” but we deserve to see the BIU’s financials for the past 18 years. Maybe you can get paid from the union’s accounts as they told you to stop working.

    PLP is not your friend Chris or labor. Pick as side.

    No, Mr. Furbert, this is not a labour dispute, it is a pretext. BIU members are not allowed to say “I’m not coming to work until you prove to me is it safe”. That is not the way the law works. Now pay your members for their illegal strike out of BIU funds and lets get on with life.
