Godwin Hulse in charge of several ministries as he is also the Minister of Labor and we asked him about the negotiations happening between his ministry, Belize Electricity Limited and the Belize Energy Workers Unions. As we have reported, members of the union are unhappy and are asking for an eight percent increase. The parties are negotiating and this afternoon Minister Hulse met with them. He told the media he is confident that the issues will be settled.
“We’ve been meeting so far I think we’ve had six meetings where we have been trying to be able to resolve what are considered the significant sticking points and I feel fairly confident that we will be able to resolve them. The idea there is to get people to come together to work together in a spirit of compromise, cooperation, camaraderie and common ground rather than conflict, confrontation and criticism and being contemptuous about it so that is the approach the ministry has taken, it’s the approach I have taken and I am confident that we will be able to work it through.”
