Port of Belize meets with CWU

The Port of Belize Limited has withdrawn its request for stevedores to come back to work. PBL had initially requested stevedores to resume work while they negotiated the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

The Port of Belize Limited has withdrawn its request for stevedores to come back to work. PBL had initially requested stevedores to resume work while they negotiated the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). PBL is now requesting a meeting with the Christian Workers Union and the Labor Department to discuss several issues, including the draft staff CBA counter proposal from April 3, the stevedore work hour draft proposal, and the stevedore grievance and disciplinary procedure proposal. In a release from PBL, they stated that they have selected a neutral location and await notification from both parties so that healthy and respectful dialogue and negotiations may commence. The meeting comes after several weeks of protesting from the PBL staff during their lunch breaks – which eventually became full-day demonstrations – as well as a back and forth between the two parties. The meeting is expected to be a long one as both parties will table all their issues and at the end will hopefully find the best possible way to move forward.
