In the first half of our news we told you of the protest by the Port of Belize Limited workers. There is another story coming out of the operations at the Port; this time involving the stevedores. Reports reaching Love News are that Stevedores did not unload a container that arrived at PBL due to the company breaking the arrangements made between the stevedores and PBL. According to the President of the Christian Workers Union (CWU), Evan Mose Hyde, that issue was resolved over the weekend and is not connected to the ongoing protests by the PBL staff.
Evan Mose Hyde, President, Christian Workers Union: “This is a continuation of a problem that started weeks ago which resulted in the stevedores standing down from working sugar. The disrespect resurfaced gain on Friday night, the stevedores decided they were going to be consistent decided they would stand down again and we spent the weekend resolving that and as we speak the stevedores are working as they’re supposed to.”
