Workers willing, says Sir Roy
The?workers of this country are committed to playing their part in taking Barbados out of the existing economic slump, says union boss Sir Roy Trotman.
And when it is over, he hopes the workers are justly rewarded.
Sir Roy, general secretary of the Barbados Workers Union (BWU), expressed this when the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations hosted its Week Of Excellence programme in Heroes Square, The City, yesterday.
“Barbados is not lost. All is not lost. The workers of Barbados will help to recover this country, but they want a share in what they produce when the recovery takes place.
“We want those visitors who come to our country to recognize that we welcome your patronage. We welcome you to our country; we want you to spend plenty of money, but we want you to have a nice experience . . . ,” the union head added.
Sir Roy also reminded Barbadians of the need to give a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay.
The programme was a collaboration among the National Initiative For Service Excellence, Barbados Productivity Council, Public Sector Reform and the BWU. (MK)
