B.T.L. Calms Employees, Preparers New C.B.A.

Rochus Schreiber

Earlier you heard from the Chairman of Belize Telemedia Limited introducing the company’s new C.E.O., Rochus Schreiber. Within days of assuming as C.E.O., employees of B.T.L., those belonging to the Belize Communications Workers Union, walked out of the offices en masse across the country.  The walkout on April eleventh was in protest of stalled negotiations related to a new collective bargaining agreement.  Today, the question of management’s relationship with the B.C.W.U. was posed to Schreiber.  He told the media that the matter has since been smoothed out and that a new C.B.A. is on the horizon.

“I’m very pleased to announce that these matters have been resolved since then and we continue to meet with the workers union on a weekly basis.  The requirements and the questions which were posed prior to the walkout have been addressed and we are working towards signing a collective bargaining agreement.  It’s an ongoing process.  It’s a very constructive, productive and friendly, open communication that we have between the management and the union.”
