CWU supports former Bowen & Bowen employees

The National Trade Union Congress of Belize called for a boycott of Bowen and Bowen products today after the recent termination of thirteen employees from the company. The employees were challenging new terms of employment and absented themselves from work for two days saying they were sick.   The boycott, however, did not appear to hold and at various establishments where we checked it was business as usual.  Bowen and Bowen say it won’t be able to tell until Monday if sales were affected. But today, the Christian Workers Union said it supports the boycott and in a statement it called the termination illegal, saying it goes against all principles of justice for an employer to dismiss an employee while on sick leave and it is equally wrong to treat the workers in a discriminatory manner. The CWU also describes the situation as “days of old” behavior coming from a company which Belize customers would have expected was also a leader in human resource management and labor rights.”

    CWU – you are disgusting. I still want it know which doctor signed those papers as I never ever want him to see me, my kids, my friends or my relatives. He/she is a criminal and should be removed from his/her post immediately and investigated. The evidence lies right there that this is a bogus case.
