Murrell new CTUSAB head
VETERAN TRADE UNIONIST Cedric Murrell is the new president of the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB).
He took over the leadership from Sir Roy Trotman, general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU). Sir Roy was at the helm of the umbrella organisation since its formation in1991.
Murrell, a former president of the National Union of Public Workers, has been involved in the trades union movement for many years and CTUSAB since its inception.
During CTUSAB’s eighth biennial conference at Solidarity House, Harmony Hall, St Michael, yesterday, Sir Roy urged the organisation’s affiliates to make “our shadow longer and our voice stronger”.
He pointed to the problem of insufficient volunteers and the need for more people to serve CTUSAB’s standing committee. (ES)
