Over 80% of ECAB staff are absent from work today forcing the company to close atleast two branches.
They are dissatisfied with the treatment they have received from management in light of the acquisition of Scotiabank.
A source tells Antigua News Room that it is not go slow, as reported in other sections of the media.
“Ecab staff is protesting the unfair and inhumane treatment being dished out as a result of the BNS acquisition,” the source said.
The protest has led to the closure of the Coolidge and Dockyard Branches.
The workers point to increased workload and no additional compensation for ECAB staff.
They says former BNS staff are handsomely compensated and are calling equality with BNS counterparts.
The staff want ECAB Management to take issues seriously and address them.
