EMPLOYEES of the National Insurance Board are on “work to rule” after their strike vote was deemed invalid on Friday. Speaking to reporters outside of NIB’s headquarters during the workers’ morning tea break yesterday, Ghion Roach, Union of Public Officers (UPO) president, said Director of Labour John Pinder deemed the strike vote invalid because there were some technicalities with the application. However, workers voted in the poll on Friday, unaware it was not deemed valid. Mr Roach said: “We were never notified of them cancelling and we continued to vote and I just wanted to let the people know and thank them for their continued support of the union that’s fighting on their behalf. “(Work to rule) means we will work on our terms. We’ve bent over backwards, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and we dug in to be disrespected. Now it’s time to kind of reduce the pace a little bit and we will go from there.”
