ECAB workers take industrial action, reportedly over pay, which is expected to run from Thursday into Friday

Workers at the Eastern Caribbean Amalgamated Bank (ECAB) are
reportedly at odds with management over salaries.
Reports say that workers walked off the job on Thursday, February
22, 2024, while other sources claim the employees never turned up
for work. Instead, they reportedly met with their representatives at
the Antigua & Barbuda Workers’ Union (ABWU).
Reportedly, a meeting about the grievances impacting the
disgruntled workers was expected to be organized with the Labour

Customers who showed up at the bank’s branches experienced
some difficulty with regard to timely services, as senior
management had to hold the fort.
In a media release, the bank apologized for the delays, saying they
were due to circumstances outside of its control.
The financial institution did not go into any details about the nature
of these conditions, however.
Apparently, this action by the workers did not only impact the bank
on Thursday. It is expected to continue into Friday, February 23, as
the bank has stated that the delay in in-branch and customer-
support services will be experienced for two days.
