The workers of the Bahamas Hotel Catering And Allied Workers Union voted on Thursday 30th May 2019 to strike against the hotels at Paradise Island and in Nassau and Cable Beach.  The workers were incensed that in their first proposal, the employers took away the standard 15 per cent which has been part of their contract for over twenty years away from them.  The Minister of Labour Dion Foulkes promised to bring the parties together. The Shadow Minister of Labour Senator Fred Mitchell said the Government should do more.
