Bahamians being offered better deal

WE ARE baffled by Opposition Leader Perry Christie's harping on the "secrecy" surrounding government's memorandum of understanding with Cable & Wireless (LIME). Surprised because on the desk in front of us is a file of the Christie government's secret negotiations with Bluewater that were then too sensitive to be shared with the public and of which no one knew the details until the Ingraham government came to office and opened the books. The union, by its own and Mr Christie's admission, was a part of the negotiations and approved the sale.

A week before the election, which resulted in the Christie government's removal from office, it was discovered that the privati ...

Gas margin increase would be political suicide

The Bahamas Petroleum Retailers Association (BPRA) is in a bad situation. The retailers are seeking government authorization for a significant increase in the profit margins allowed regarding the sale of gasoline and diesel.
The increases proposed by the retailers would amount to an additional $0.28 per gallon for diesel and an additional $0.30 per gallon for gasoline, according to the retailers. Consumers would face higher bills for fuel if the government agreed to the increases. The government regulates the margins.
BPRA representative Oswald Moore told The Nassau Guardian Friday that the industry cannot survive under the current margins, as retailers spend $1,000 to buy diesel and earn ...

The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) is suggesting an independent expert be brought in to look into both the Bluewater and Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) offers for the purchase of shares in the Bahamas Telecommunications Company?(BTC).
The PLP said it would be more useful and transparent to the public if an independent expert was immediately engaged to make the comparison between the two offers as opposed to statements the government continues to release regarding the offers.
Early this month, the government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CWC for the sale of a 51 percent stake in BTC at a cost of $210 million, plus stamp tax. Back in 2007, the PLP was discussing a deal with ...

BAHAMIAN trade unions went international with their fight against the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless, making good on threats to intensify their opposition.

"Employers and workers shall be represented on an equal footing on any bodies through which consultations are undertaken," states a section of the convention on tripartite consultation between representatives of the government, employers and workers.
