press18.3.14bA radical boycott of the Bowen and Bowen Group of companies is currently being planned for Friday of this week. This is a movement being spearheaded by the Belize Workers Union and the National Trade Union Congress of Belize based on the wake of 13 employees who complained about new contracts to the media and were subsequently terminated of their posts. 

 

A release from the BWU Head Office in Orange Walk Town states that both the NTUCB and BWU views with significant disquiet and concern the recent release of thirteen employees under the pre text that these persons employment status have become redundant.

 

It is the view of both unions that the circumstances in which these employees were driven to take action (employment status alteration), feeling compelled to come out publicly with their plight, is indeed a travesty accelerated by a total breakdown of industrial relations. The release is calling on Bowen and Bowen to take in consideration the reinstatement of the employees.

 

The release ends with both unions calling on all affiliate members and the wider public to boycott the purchase of all Bowen and Bowen products on Friday March 21st, 2014. We’ll have a full story on this in tomorrow’s newscast.
