Crucible International – A Threat to Democracy

The following was received from a concerned parent- David, Blogmaster
My daughter suffers from back pains.
In January this year, my daughter was planing on inviting the Labour Department to assess work conditions. She raised this with me and I advised her to write them first which she did.
The issue was about inappropriate chairs which repeatedly broke while sitting on and ensuing back pains which are aggravated. Management discussed the issues raised and attempted to resolve same.
Subsequently when a replacement broke the Supervisor told her she’ll have to sit on the floor until they find another.
I got involved. I called and asked why they would want their Staff to be physically uncomfortable and consequently emotionally unsettled from the fear of falling and becoming injured. The Supervisor and Senior Manager assured me that they always replace the chairs and that they were ergonomically fit. My daughter is a full sized lady. They advised that they had just sourced a new chair, weight appropriate, and it would be at the incumbents desk before she reported for work the next day.  Indeed this was so but with the same kind of frail armless chair.
My daughter has been seeing a Physio Therapist for this discomfort and recently she recommended that my daughter visit an Occupational Therapist who would visit and assess the physical work area.
This was done and the Therapist called the General Manager’s Office at Crucible a number of times, weeks ago to make an appointment to visit the Plant. One week after that first call the Manager’s Assistant returned her call. The Therapist was by then preparing for overseas travel but is expected to visit Crucible on her return.
Last week the General Manager of Crucible met with my daughter and in the discussion informed her that they have sourced a new and appropriate chair and will have it in place shortly. He stated that she was a producer, a valued employee etc and that he didn’t want to loose her. He further stated that should the chair still not be adequate Crucible will give her the option to resign and the firm will pay her Severance.
The chair has not yet arrived.
My daughter reported for work today June 7, 2019 and was handed a Severance letter with two weeks notice, a cheque covering the period to June 27, 2019, two weeks vacation pay, years severance calculations and a completed Unemployment Benefits Form.
Screenshot 2019-06-07 at 02.18.47.png
#1 My daughter was employed on a monthly basis but Crucible paid fortnightly. Therefore it should be one month’s notice.
#2 Today being June 7th already begins the month and the Labour Law is …”one month or part thereof”. Therefore Crucible should know that she should be given one month’s notice from today and the vacation should begin after that period.
#3 She was appointed in October of 2015. Therefore Crucible should know that she should be paid for three years and nine months ( at end of June).
#4 She was denied the opportunity to try the “new fit chair”.
#5 The Therapist hasn’t yet visited to determine whether the furniture; desk and chair are appropriate or indeed other items or issues relevant to occupational health.
It would appear that Crucible ditched the cargo rather than be found wanting.
Having been injured, she has been paying for her therapy which has to be continued.This is contemptible.
My daughter has strong supportive and capable parents but what about all the other employees, especially those plus size ladies, who do not have the level of financial, emotional, legal and academic support?
These firms – Informatics and Offshore –  without Union representation have a history of exploitation, discrimination, breeches and disregard for the Law.
The Labour department should be visiting and assessing these firms regularly while having interviews with employees to know their grievances; not only talking to employers.
Further, employees when relieved of their tenure (justly of course) should not then have to be embroiled in arguments and actions to get their just dues. It should be a clean amicable divorce.
This is totally abhorrent, despicable, Illegal and unethical.

    Some very solid points. Let me repost a few from them before you run off and look at the distraction or suggested entertainment on Facebook or Instagram.

    “Those who want to tolerate nonsense and abuse and discrimination are free and welcome to do so but that’s not for me.The Labour Laws has requirements and all firms must abide.”

    “because this is an international firm and its offering jobs to Barbadians this matter should be handled under a bushel. I beg to differ. They need to be “called out”. These firms cannot operate like this in any developed country or indeed at home.”

    “Further there should be no distinction between treatment for local and international firms. In fact “charity begins at home”.

    “We must protect what is ours. They want to build on our beaches when they can’t within 50 meters of the high tide mark on thiers or developed countries but we prostitute our coastlines.”

    “Employees never complained or gave statements to the Labour Officers or Union (for fear of retalitory action), until they leave the firm. This is unacceptable. This is, among other things, a threat to “democracy”. Its victimization and managing by fear.”

  • I was one of the fools who was distracted by the suggested entertainment on Instagram.
    I could not comment because I was one who saw this as a personal matter and not of national importance.

    Gut at 11:49 the person returned and launched what I consider as a personal attack on every Barbadian.

    How dare she mention that foreigners must and should abide by our laws?
    How dare she state that she will not allow herself to be victimize; not allow herself to be abused and remain silent?
    How dare she to believe that because foreigners cannot do this nonsense elsewhere that they should not be able to do it here?
    And to top it all off, she seem to believe that we should have access to our beaches because other countries protect their shoreline.
    Furthermore, she had the gall too say that when we “have a pick” we tolerate all manner of behavior and seem to have courage or “balls” only after the “pick” is done.

    It is obvious to me that this woman is not a Barbadian or she would know how we do things here.

    IF YOU HAVE A METABOLISM SKEWED TO BURNING FAT, ON A DIET WITH FAT YOU CAN CONVERT THE GLYCEROL LIBERATED FROM DIGESTION OF FAT TO GLUCOSE BY GLUCONEOGENESIS TO ALLOW YOU TO MAKE DNA AND RNA VIA THE HEXOSE MONOPHOSPHATE SHUNT

    YOU CAN ALSO DO THIS BY CONVERSION OF gluogenic amino acids. THESE AMINO ACIDS YIELD PYRUVATE WHICH CAN BE
    CONVERTED TO GLUCOSE BY GLUCONEOGENESIS

    SOME OF THE gluogenic amino acids. CAN BE CONVERTED TO GYCEROL FOR FAT PRODUCTION
    SO YOU CAN GET FAT BY EATING LOTS OF MEAT……….WHICH MAY BE AS BIG A PROBLEM AS THE SWEET DRINKS

    HOPE YOU HAVE LEARNED SOMETHING FROM MY “overbearing drivel” AND . EVEN THOUGH “no one gives a rats ass about My opinion or My purported knowledge.” AND EVEN THOUGH “There are millions in the medical profession WORLDWIDE, WHO ARE NOT WELL VERSED IN BIOCHEMISTRY

    But Khadijah Medford why you dont tell the truth to your parents and stop them from being an ass, you never ever fell on the job and your injuries were not a result of any work place accident from the three chairs you broke but the fact that you fell while scrubbing your ex-boyfriends bathtub and since then have been having back problems, why you didn’t say that your heart and back problems can be caused due to your obesity and the weight that you gained significant weight during you time employed by this company and this is attributed to your poor choice in diet and lack of exercise. Now that being said the campany always replaces your chairs and I’m fact gave you the biggest chair they had, if management said to you they were sourcing another one maybe that’s being the average person is nowhere near your size and who’s to say that any office furniture company in Barbados would carry a chair to accommodate you its not everyday you need to purchase a chair for person over 400 pounds. Now all these back problems you have yet you was seem most recently on a cruise with a man riding you like a horse if you get me vex I’ll be posting the video to ‘whitecollarcrime’ on instagram. Your back problems only arrise as soon as no overtime and cash incentive is available, but when there is bounty and overtime you would sit at your desk from 6:30 to 4:30 not even moving to use the bathroom or go to lunch doesn’t your back hurt you then. You and your parents just suit, what I think the problem is is that your mother vex you got sent home as you said all the responsibilities of the house rest on you so now she looking for someway to get money to get by. Its said that even if you felt you were treated unfairly this would be the route you would take other than seeking legal advice and taking this from there no one needed to know what was going on with you but you have a two sided mouth and noone can say you were discriminated against they dont know half of the nonsense you have gotten away with during your time there in my personal opinion as an employee there you should have been sent home a long time ago but you were given chance after chance a lil suspension from overtime and thats it I can’t even remember you being suspended from work. So take you hefty payout which I believe was more than deserved and invest in your lil nail business and stop bashing the company. Without rules in an organization it would be pure chaos look at Barbados laws are set and people still don’t follow them but they are there as a disciplinary guide to persecute those found guilty.

    The Medford name brings back nasty memories to me as an Employer, so this company Crucible International should be applauded for putting up with these vile creatures for 3 years who somehow think they are entitled and can run roughshod over anyone.

    I can also see why you hid the Medford name in the letter.

I also honestly dont think people shud be penalised for being sick or given certified sick leave, especially wen its islandwide or very contagious. The chairs are very uncomfortable for alot of ppl in there that are less that 200lbs so its not about the girl weight. As @hant would have posted proper office chairs suited for long hours and some which can hold up to 400 or 500lbs.

    Hope that this is not the same mummy that did not send her child to school regularly, then gave the Ministry of Education grief because she wanted the child to go to QC the school nearest to where she lived, instead of to St. Lucy according to marks gained in the exam.

    If so the Ministry of Education resolutely refused to be bullied.

    Maybe if parents spent a bit more time parenting their children, then they would not have to get their panties in a knot trying to parent their young adults.

  • I think you and your parents did not think through this whole thing before hand as this seems to be a reflex to her being sent home, in my opinion this has a negative spin off as it has placed her in the spotlight in a way she would not have like. You guys could have handled this differently instead of posting to social media I mean this is the internet once its out there it can’t be taken back, as with the old photos and videos of her have also now resurfaced. You have placed a negative light over the company and as you guys said it’s an offshore company who’s to say clients have not gotten wind of this post and decide to take the business away then you have hundreds of employees out of work. These offshore companies keep us employed in a sector where jobs these days are hard to come by take a look at NCO when they left Barbados a large number of people were out of work . I think she was more than fairly treated and not discriminated against as they are trying to make everyone believe the fact that the general manager personally got someone to purchase and install arm rest for her to make her more comfortable says that she was not terminated for he weight as much effort was made to keep her as comfortable as possible. And as her letter states her position was made redundant so should space in her department become available she would be rehired as has been done many times in the past. I just wish you guys would have thought this through before using this means to get your message across I know of employees who thought they were wrongfully dismissed and they sought legal advice and were rehired couldn’t you guys have done the same instead of going about it this way. Who’s to say we turn up for work one day to see a notice on the door and the doors locked and the company moved to another country many of us have children to feed and homes to run and have been happily employed here for years. I think this was a bratty selfish move.

    Not sending a child to school regularly damages a child’s chances of succeeding in school. Especially if the child is then not properly home schooled by intelligent parents or intelligent private tutors.

    Then attempting bully the Ministry of Education to admit your child to a school which is elite by merit, when your child “earned” 15% makes you look very, very foolish.

    Somebody needs to tell that Guyanese woman to “know her place”…she can’t come into Barbados and expect to run t’ings.

    P.S. To all of you who are still parents of young children, feed them well, cook hot meals for them, send them to school regularly, accompany them to the playgrounds, parks and beaches. Love them.

    However, this will be my last comments to you.

    If I was among the owners of Crucible Internation I would sue you as you are not your daughter and they never engaged you in employment or as an independent contractor.

    You have displayed no leadership skills however what you have displayed is emotionalism and jumping the gun.

    Leadership would have started by displaying your real name on Barbados Underground since you choose to expose the company Crucible International and hiding behind an alias purporting to do the right thing.

    So that you know I am not a Lawyer, I am however an educated black man with children who would not have gone down this path as I care about their welfare and would have pursued the relevant channels.

    You may have the last word.

    There is always and always will be collateral damage. My intention was and is to hughlight matters that are persisting in areas that affect not merely me but many. This issue is not just this firm but many.
    I am sorry that you feel it should have been handled under a bushel and I respect your perspective and position but I dont think you (and the nay sayers) quite understand the details or intricacies of this particular case.
    Unfortunately this is how social media works. With freedom of expression, ppl go off ranting and mud slinging. Notice that the firm has not, themselves, made any statements but those who remain at the firm has elected to bring old experiences to this discourse, all of which are irrelevant and to air what was done or given or promised whem they were never involved in any of the discussions.
    Since you were nit involved in any of the before discussions and are only reading and referring to these posts you cannot rightly claim that the firm did enough or too much.
    If you fear being on the line start thinkung new skills and proprietorship because that behaviour in the new irder of the day.

    The term “educated” casts lots of dubts these days.
    You don’t know what you DO NOT KNOW. ponder that.
    IF the 2 points you listed are the only grounds that the firm could and should sue, then Crucible, who has been engaged in talks with ME (sleep on that Mr Educated) has no grounds to sue me. I am very amused that so many are of the dim view that I can’t intercede on the lady’s behalf.
    Was it you talking about displaying real name? Did your mither actually name Barbados 2019? Give me a break.
    I’m hard pressed to think that I would think that Crucible wouldn’t know who I am. There is only one such letter as I posted.

    I cannot afford to think like that.
    Who are Barbadians anyway? Last time I count there were 35,000 ppl from Guyana here, plenty from Trinidad and Jamaica, the other islands, those from Germany and England, etc. (though employers)
    I posted the second time to reiterate that this was not only about my daughter. She’s nit the only plus size employee there with broken chair challenges and my daughter is nit the first that was wrongfully dismissed under guise of low volume business (others went to Labour and were re-enstated). We are out, we stay out; not interested.
    It was to share a trend that is little known outside the industry or Labour Department.
    From the number of comments here, some from within Crucible, and the many I know who read but never comment and those on my facebook account, I have acheived the objective.
    My hope is that these firms become better partners in this employment relationship. produ

    I can’t believe you though; being a man and all.
    How could you with conscience n commonsence state that the child hardly went to school and scored 15% and I wanted her where she didnt score for?
    My daughter went to a Private school (ranked 3rd at that time) and had perfect attendance; the certificate is on our wall.
    The school the Ministry offered first was that which they claimed had space. I refused telling them that’s not for the likes of us. What you don’t know is that the same Chief Education Officer under new government offered the school in St Thomas (as per the attained score) I refused that also because having been to Atlanta during the passa passa, I learned about home schooling (very common now v public schooling) and told the Ministry we were not interested since none of their public schools was comparable to the environment she was accustomed to at the primary school. The fact that the Ministry never brought truency charges speaks volumes.
    There is Power, then there is puss.
    As I said she now holds an Associate Degree etc. and she keeps moving on.

    Thanks for rehashing this dead horse. Everyone now knows what became of that little girl locked out of the system. But she wasn’t wasn’t the only affected by that glip and offered a school that wasn’t even on their list of choices (the reason again for printing in the press then). But she is the only one of that lot that doesn’t have such a school on her Certificates or have to list such a conkawa school (with a stigma) on her Resume. Power to people.
    She proudly states “I WAS HOME SCHOOLED”

    When de ole man first read this issue I had 3.5 thoughts

    My first was that one person, among the few in Barbados, had had the courage to speak out about the cabal that the International companies bring to the island.

    An unassailable law to themselves which, knowing the beggarly position is in, and the fact that bajan authorities let expats figuratively and literally kick bot bajans, I said kudos to the writer.

    The second point was about the chair and an acknowledgement of the fact that, in Canada, or the United States, the company would have ensured that this employee had a safe chair.

    My third observation was that no one has made themselves so if we are fat or thin or maga or wopsy, as long as we do our job, that should not enter into the equation.

    My 1/2 a point refers to this anonymice issue.

    If you come to a blog with an anonymice identity and you get exposed, so what?

    You did not post under your real name therefore you cannot claim slander.

    We who actively post here as activists, post here for the most part, because we feel that there may be some benefit or resolve afforded our matters circuitously, whereas one does not get justice by the usual means elsewhere.

    It’s a calculated guess that one makes when, for example, your matter is subjudice, you come to BU or Naked Departure or other media house and air the matter.

    And while this is not a court matter to be considered subjudice, there is a risk associated with taking this pathway

    As has happened within the space of its posting, senior management, employees, and others has started their attacks on the writer.

    So, instead of the substantive article being aired, what happens is that the personal affairs of the writer and the daughter start to be aired.

    And the writer finds themselves fighting the enemy on 3 fronts, “dat dem is tampering with the livelihoods of other bajans”, that their daughter is fat, broke multiple chairs and is pretending to be hurt, though all over Instagram AND THE MAIN POINT ABOUT PATTERNS OF UNFAIRNESS get blotted out in a heartbeat.

    So, Concerned Parent, either you let the people who are attacking this Medford person talk what they will bout Medford, and keep your focus OR YOU HAVE LOST THE BATTLE, in utero!

    But I am an ole man who only went go school until i was 12, so ignore the ole fool

    A shortcoming of the average Bajan is that they suffer in silence. Some call it being docile/passive. This mindset allows the establishment to continue merrily along knowing that the few that speak out will be ridiculed by their own.”

    That’s why some women and I have formed a concertium to register a Foundation (for teen mothers) to address real issues challenging ppl across a wide spectrum. Its founded on the same principle of the founding of the Rotary Club: business ppl only as members. The rational is that there is to be no begging for money to pay administrative costs.
    Barbados has quite 1500 or so registered Charities and most purporting to deal with women issues but all only with the symptoms. Some with feed ing others with abuse. Legal Aid only with Criminal(murder) or maintenance but when there are such greivances and other legal matters there is no funding or no collective voice. Advocacy is dead in Barbados; almost.
    My daughter and two of her other coleagues from college are among the founding members.
    Crucible and the likes will soon have an Organization to deal with, airing peoples greivances, providing moral and legal n financial support.
    Barbados is not only of those who were born here. Everyone who lives and work here.
    Thanks for hosting this Blog. Its very useful.
    Believe me, it serves a mighty purpose

    Be careful.
    That’s exactly how your ancestors got enslaved (the European writers reported).
    Wine, chocolate n ham. Muh! Valentine and Christmas. Muh!
    With a backdrop of 365 days a year and so many breeches permeating between those walls but only two days assigned for gifts. Muh!
    That sounds like prostitution to me.
    Know your worth and demand fair value in exchange.
    Don’t take this away from we
    That is by no means my intention dear, mine is that Crucible and the likes STRAIGHTEN UP AND FLY RIGHT.
    She is here, where she should have been a long time. You are so afraid of losing your pick. muh! That speaks volumes.
    You are dishonest, hyprocrital and insecure (job wise). Your only security is selfemployment. Firms, private or public, local or otherwise hire n fire. When your # call that’s it and they apply all kinds of gimeric n rhetoric to justify their actions. In this case I, me, de mammy, was involved b4 as well as Therapists..
    Crucible ERRED. Don’t use you and these witless fabrications to defend Crucible. You alone ‘what obstacle can stay the mighty firce of a sea-seaking river in its course or cause the ascending orb of day to stay’.
    This is a steamrollercleaner and it will all come out in the wash. Soon.
    ta ta. Adios.
