K.H.M.H. board fails to show up to meeting with union

Story PictureThe standoff between Belize Medical and Dental Union and the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital Board ran into another snag today. That is because a meeting scheduled for this afternoon did not get off the ground. This time it was the board that did not show up. A Union Executive informed News Five that they waited at the Radisson Fort George Hotel from two this afternoon until close to four thirty and no one from the Board turned up. But late this evening the Government’s Press Office issued a release stating that earlier today the mediator, Labour Commissioner, Ivan Williams, received a letter from the Board seeking a postponement of the meeting until Thursday at two in the afternoon. But News Five has learnt that the Board was in a separate meeting at another location with a legal advisor. Doctors are also scheduled to meet tonight.
