G.B. Power Surprised at Union’s Reaction to Hiring of Bahamians

March 4, 2009

We at Grand Bahama Power Company are surprised by the CEWU’s reaction to our decision to hire four additional Bahamian meter men. In these most challenging economic times, we are pleased to be able to create temporary employment.

The four temporary employees have been hired for the interim to help clear a backlog of work in the customer service area of the company. Bringing in a team to help assist the company will decrease estimates of customers’ billings, increase response time to customer queries and assist with reconnection and disconnection services. It has long been a standard practice of our company to contract temporary workers as the need arises.

We remain committed to the advancement of our employees and will continue to act in the best interest of our customers and the communities we serve.
