Christian Workers Union Seeks Justice for 35 Stevedores Terminated by Port of Belize in 2020
The Christian Workers Union is seeking justice for thirty-five stevedores it says were unjustly terminated by the Port of Belize Ltd in 2020. The union has filed complaints with the Labour Complaints Tribunal (LCT) on the member’s behalf and says they are entitled to redress. The union believes that although it is now over forty months since the men were fired, they are deserving of compensation. CWU President Leonora Flowers spoke about the demand.
Leonora Flowers, President, Christian Workers Union: “We have that in front of the Labour Complaint Tribunal and we’re waiting for a decision so that those people can get the redress that they deserve.”
Reporter: So it’s not that you’d want them to go back to work, more of compensation at this point ?
Leonora Flowers, President, Christian Workers Union: “It depends on what the LCT says. Labour Complaint Tribunal.”
