Antigua’s labour commissioner has been asked to mediate the matter between sacked West Indies selectors Courtney Browne and Eldine Baptiste and their former employers.
Browne and Baptiste are claiming damages from cricket west Indies (cwi) for unfair dismissal after being axed when the new Ricky Skerritt administration took office in March. Baptiste and Browne, the former chairman of selectors, were served termination letters on April 10.
However, their attorneys Thomas, John & Co. sent correspondence to CWI chief executive officer Johnny grave stating that their clients were unfairly dismissed and were demanding compensation for loss of earnings, future earnings and gratuity.
However, CWI has not responded favourably and subsequently, the attorneys have sent correspondence to Antigua’s labour commissioner to mediate in the matter.
