B.S.I. Addresses N.T.U.C.B.’s Involvement in Negotiations

Belizario Carballo

As we mentioned earlier, the N.T.U.C.B.’s role in the current process has been met with questions from B.S.I. concerning its agenda.  While he did not speak openly, Carballo alluded to an interview last Friday in which the N.T.U.C.B. representative was purportedly misinformed of the facts of the matter pertaining to the purchasing agreement.

 

Belizario Carballo, Financial Controller, B.S.I.

“It is very clear to us that there are those who may have a motive and those who, either through political agendas, personal agendas we don’t know but certainly have a motive to deliberately stall the efforts of the B.S.C.F.A. to reach an agreement.  And I think that some of that was clearly evidenced towards the end of last week and we had clearly been working along with the B.S.C.F.A. on this process.  The process may have taken longer than others may have expected.  We ourselves would have expected it to have been a shorter process because there was an agreement, three points of difference were sort of surfaced, agreement was reached on those three points.  We incorporated was agreed in those three points in the draft agreement and we submitted it.  When I say misinformation it’s simply because there is the accusation levied on B.S.I. with very strong accompanying condemnation that somehow we have sought to, in bad faith, introduce new elements or new points in the process and that is simply not so.”

 

A date for a general meeting of the B.S.C.F.A. is yet to be determined.
