Unions Meet with G.O.B.!

While the teachers walked the picket line, today the joint union leaders met with government officials today for close to five hours. The meeting which started at ten this morning at the Central Bank of Belize ended around three this afternoon. It is unclear what were the main points discussed in the meeting; however, information to News Five is that the atmosphere was amicable.  Also of note, is that the twenty-one day notice stands – so the unions are still on track to continue with industrial action.  Today, the unions’ and government reps departed through the back exit bypassing the waiting media in the front and we were told that the some of the unions went into caucus meeting right after to discuss what was covered.  Our cameras caught Minister Fonseca departing first through the front gate – and a few minutes later the union reps emerged along with Ministers Henry Usher and Cordel Hyde where they left through the back. We reached out to the union reps for comment but at news time had not heard back.
