BTC Union Will Not Work With C&W

Stressing that Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) employees “really don’t want to work with Cable & Wireless, no matter what”, the president of the union representing the company’s line staff yesterday said he was “disappointed” with the alleged lack of information from the Government regarding the details of the pending sale.
The union is particularly concerned about the 30 per cent reduction in BTC staff that has been proposed by Cable & Wireless if it acquires the 51 per cent stake in the telecommunications company.
Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) president, Bernard Evans said:
“We honestly believe the corporation has been so successful being run by Bahamians and its government-appointed Board of Directors deciding what it can and can’t do. It’s been very profitable and is still trying to keep us on the cutting edge, so we believe they should divest to Bahamians.”
