Nassau, The Bahamas, January 24, 2023: BTC is a law-abiding corporate entity. The company has entered into agreements with numerous contractors and vendors to provide services. These individuals are independent contractors of BTC and not full-time employees, and as such, are not covered under the bargaining agreement.
As the first telecoms company to provide fiber to the home, BTC is heavily focused and invested in completely upgrading its network to fiber, which will eventually see the complete turndown of the copper network. A number of contracted technicians have embraced the new fiber technology and upskilled themselves, and have either formed companies or have offered their services as independent contractors.
BTC invites and continues to encourage all technicians to also upskill with fiber certifications. BTC’s CEO has met with the technicians and has reached out to arrange a subsequent meeting.
