BEWU says Boycott Bowen & Bowen on Friday

There is the threat of a countrywide boycott of all Bowen & Bowen products this Friday, spearheaded by the Belize Energy Workers Union in solidarity with former employees of the company, who were recently terminated from their posts as deliverymen.  According to a release issued by the BEWU, the circumstance surrounding the action taken by the employees was the result of a complete breakdown of industrial relations.  Furthermore, the BEWU says that the facts in the matter reflect procedural missteps which should be corrected by reinstating the workers.  In response to the release, Bowen & Bowen Ltd. says Friday will be business as usual as it remains committed to its customers and loyal employees.  The company says it is regrettable that a handful of terminated employees would act in a manner that would affect the livelihood of over nine hundred of their former colleagues, putting them at risk by tarnishing Bowen & Bowen’s reputation.

    You don’t know what you are talking about Rod. These are hard working men who stood up for their rights after being taken advantage of by Bowen & Bowen for years. If you advocate working twice as hard for less pay and no over time while putting your life at risk you should go work for Bowen & Bowen. They presented this contract to these guys after 9:00 p.m. the night and told them sign it or you don’t have a job. which is totally illegal.

    Change is hard and not everyone can adapt. The inside scoop on this story is that since the passing Mr Barry, who ran bowen and bowen like a family business there have been many changes. Bowen and Bowen has now adapted a corporate approach and is running the business as such. Changes to improve performance and profits have been put in place, but again not everyone can adapt to change as is the case with these terminated employees.
