A Government spokesman today advised that as there is no labour dispute any action taken, including any proposed work stoppage or strike is unlawful. Section 87 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act makes the position clear.
Acting Premier, the Hon. Walter Roban said: “Many employers are under pressure, trying to remain open while others have had to shut their business, some temporarily and others permanently.
Many workers have not worked for months and are barely maintaining themselves and their families as they struggle to cope with the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic and its many ramifications.
It is extremely disappointing for the BIU to threaten the people of Bermuda with any form of work stoppage, particularly in the absence of a genuine labour dispute.”
