Caricom OKs skilled worker moves
In what was describes a first step, the Caribbean Community (Caricom) late Monday completed an agreement allows teachers and nurses to move freely between member nations.
Easier worker migration has been seen as a way to stabilize labor markets and help to discourage skilled worker flight to non-Caricom nations.
Caricom officials said hospitality workers and artisan may be added to the agreement next.
Although most of the 15-nation group is participating in the agreement, the Bahamas declined to join the worker-movement agreement. Haiti is in the process of clearing up some related legal issues, while Montserrat must await approval from the United Kingdom.
