A long-awaited Industrial Agreement was signed yesterday between the Bahamas Industrial Manufacturers & Allied Workers Union (BIMAWU) and Morton Salt Bahamas, ending a two-year industrial dispute.
Morton Salt’s line staff union is accusing the salt harvester of using its threatened employee “lock-out” as a “union-busting” tactic.
Fears were rising last night that Inagua will become “a ghost town” after Morton Salt gave its workers a 15-day ultimatum to agree acceptable industrial terms or be “locked out” of the plant.
