BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — Talks were set to resume Friday in Antigua between the region’s trade unions and LIAT after the regional airline rescinded dozens of redundancy letters stemming from the closure of city ticket offices region-wide, the unions’ chief spokesman told the Caribbean Media Corporation late Thursday.

The unions appeared set to resume talks on ways of saving the jobs through transfers or subcontracting services while the carrier moved to slash costs amid widespread criticism of the high cost of intra-regional travel and a shaky financial position for the 55-year-old island-hopping carrier that is owned by regional governments.
