Reports reaching Bermuda Real that an estimated 60 unionised workers at the Government Quarry downed tools yesterday (Feb 24) and the vast majority of them reportedly called in sick today.

As a result, our sources say the quarry was forced to shutdown as there were no workers in the quarry this morning.

No official word yet on what the dispute is all about, but our sources say: “Management is not honouring their side of following the Collective Bargaining Agreement.”

One worker said there is a manager, who he did not name, “who wants to be down there dictating and running the place like its his business”.

“It don’t work like that,” he said.

We are currently trying to get an official comment and will keep you posted.
