Restive Scotiabank workers


Unionized employees of Scotiabank Jamaica are reportedly restive.

The Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU) which represents the bank's employees, on Tuesday told RJR News that it had rejected a wage offer presented by the management.

According to the union, Scotiabank is offering a 4.5 per cent increase in year one of the new contract period, and four per cent in the second year.

BITU President General Kavan Gayle said the union has informed the bank that the workers will take industrial action if the salary offer is not improved.

The union represents one thousand workers at Scotiabank.
