BELCO workers downed tools today for an emergency meeting over planned job losses with the Electricity Supply Trade Union.

Reports reaching Bermuda Real said redundancies are coming and the company’s canteen for staff is reportedly being closed.

Unconfirmed reports also suggest that nearly 20 employees stand to lose their jobs, with even more offered the early retirement option.

One source told Bermuda Real: “The 21 Day Notice has been given, but to save money they have to lay off technical staff as well.”

Again, there has been no official comment from BELCO yet.
