NATIONAL Insurance Board (NIB) workers have voted almost unanimously to take strike action. Ghion Roach, the president of the workers’ union, the Union of Public Officers (UPO), said Friday’s ballot was overwhelmingly in favour of a strike. In an interview with The Tribune, Mr Roach said the Nassau count was 229 voting “yes” with just one “no”. He added the count from the Family Islands should “trickle in over the next few days”. He said: “The minister has agreed to restart negotiations this week, we will see where it goes from there. (If) things go left, we’ll be back at (protesting) again, but we will work with management for now.” Last week, the employees of the NIB were on “work to rule” after their strike vote was deemed invalid.
