The Cabinet Office advised today that the Secretary to the Cabinet, Dr. Derrick Binns along with other senior Government technical officers convened an emergency meeting with members of the Bermuda Industrial Union (BIU) late this afternoon.

During the meeting it was agreed that a more constructive protocol centering around solution-oriented communication is established with a view to significantly reducing work stoppages, particularly as it relates to Government’s public transportation and other crucial Government services.

Following the meeting, Dr. Binns said discussions were “healthy and productive and we expect that the steps taken and protocols agreed will minimize service disruptions in the future”.
