More than 30% of BTC Employee are seeking separation from the Company…450 workers


Nassau, Bahamas – BTC officials today called Phase 1 of the voluntary separation programme that ended on Friday “very successful,” with the number of persons making applications to leave the company in line with business plan expectations.

“We are pleased to report that the entire process related to the offer of voluntary packages to staff has gone fairly smoothly.  We are now starting the next phase, which is to evaluate the applications and facilitate the disengagement process for successful applicants in a way that maintains the integrity of the operations and ensures proper standards for customer service” said Geoff Houston, CEO. “We are grateful to all colleagues for the very professional manner in which they have conducted themselves throughout the process so far and anticipate their continued professionalism as we move to the next phase of this exercise.”

Mr. Houston noted also that the departure dates for successful applicants will be staggered consistent with BTC’s desire not to disrupt the business, with the first group of persons leaving toward mid July.

The voluntary separation package was agreed as part of the deal when Cable & Wireless Communications purchased 51% of BTC in April, placing it under its Caribbean-wide LIME umbrella.


  1. How much longer before we can start noticing the changes? like better service and cheaper rates, I mean like all them good things they were promising us when they were selling it.

  2. Mr. Houston and Mr. Ingraham, in this photo, reminds me of a character in the movie, Left Behind. The only thing missing off, of both their foreheads, are the horns. Mr. Houston said he is grateful that the employees acted in a professional manner in what he calls voluntary separation. (think he expected the employees to act like monkeys?) He knows and the rest of us knows that this so called separation package is just another the massa’s have thought up to replace THE AXE.
