Union Response To News Paper Article


The Bermuda Industrial Union is aware of the article in yesterday’s Royal Gazette stating “BIU work to rule torpedoes cruise ship visit to St Georges”.  

We would like to make it clear that the work to rule action was made by our General Council on Monday, June 7th following our meeting with the Premier and Minister Hayward, the work to rule and over time ban were to last for 7 days starting on Friday June 11th, which would mean it ends midnight Thursday, June 17th.

We are aware of the statement by Mr. Joe Simas, the vice president of marine operations at Meyer Agencies, stating “We made alternative plans because of the work to rule action”.  

However given the fact that we had put out our intended date to conclude the work to rule, we are not sure why the ship is unable to dock in St. George’s as scheduled.

Once again our members and our organization are being made to shoulder all of the responsibility and blame for St. George’s and the local business owners not being able to welcome cruise passengers as expected.
