Union seeks to represent CAL workers in Jamaica
2011-08-19

The Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU) is seeking the right to represent the more than 100 employees of Caribbean Airlines (CAL) in Jamaica.

The union has written to the airline advising that it will try to get bargaining rights for just over 120 flight attendants and pursers working here.

The BITU represented flight crews at Air Jamaica, before the firm merged with the Trinidad-based airline.

BITU senior negotiating officer Rudolph Thomas said the labour ministry will now review the representation rights claim, before deciding on whether a poll should be held among the CAL workers.
