The Bermuda Industrial Union (BIU) membership met yesterday afternoon and a motion was moved that under Section 10:
Protection of freedom of assembly and association of the Bermuda Constitution we will exercise our right. Under this protection a weekly protest will take effect as of the week of September 13th 2021.
The BIU membership will meet at Union Headquarters to protest Section 57 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 2021 we are encouraging our sister unions and all members of the public who believe in justice to join us.
We have also been contacted by one of our international affiliates and we will be reaching out to the others for their support.
The ‘protest day’ will be announced weekly.
The membership has agreed that the protest will continue until the Government comes back to the table in good faith to engage in dialogue to reach a fair resolution of this matter.
The BIU will also be circulating a petition on this issue and encourage people to sign as a show of solidarity with the Union on its position.
We have extended the invitation on more than one occasion to the Government to come back to the table and we remain ready and willing to meet with the Government at any time to resolve this issue.
