Salary Cuts at B.T.L.

Unemployment is growing due to COVID-19 and most companies have had to offer salary cuts to employees and reduce work hours to be able to stay in business. The cuts start from the top and trickle all the way down in the first wave and companies are anticipating a second wave of cuts as the economy continues to shrink.  Now, at B.T.L., salary cuts have been instituted; managers have taken upward of twenty percent cuts. As to staff cuts, that is under consideration at this time, depending on the economic rebound.  In the case of the Belize Communications Workers Union, it continues to negotiate proposed salary reductions of fifteen percent for non-management staff.  The proposal presented by the B.T.L. Management involves a fifteen percent reduction, which will impact more than three hundred union members.
