Heastie defends foreign workers at BPL



Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Bahamas Power and Light (BPL) told Eyewitness News Thursday that overhauling Clifton Pier and its efficiency is a major party of why the company made the decision to bring in foreign expertise from a long-time partnership to assist the company’s endeavours.

The news comes after Union executives accused BPL of hiring foreign workers instead of Bahamians for various roles at Clifton Pier.

The company is currently undergoing a massive exercise to reduce its expenses and overhead costs.
