Pursuant to Section 76 of the Industrial Relations Act, I have considered that the strike action taken as a result of Strike Certificates issued on the 23rd April 2019 relative to Trade Disputes filed on the 2nd of November 2018 and the 25th of March 2019 by the Bahamas Utilities Services & Allied Workers Union and the Water and Sewerage Management Union, has threatened the public interest.

I have, therefore, referred the disputes, which have given rise to the strike actions, to the Industrial Tribunal.

In accordance with the said Act all parties to the dispute have been notified in writing.

The Hon. Dion Foulkes

Minister of Labour

Nassau, The Bahamas
