In tribute to Sir Frank

Social Share

Hundreds of jubilant workers yesterday paid tribute to National Hero and former trade union stalwart Sir Frank Walcott during the annual May Day Parade. 
Participants from a wide cross-section of the workforce paused for a moment at the statue of Sir Frank at the National Insurance Scheme buildings on Culloden Road, St Michael, for a short ceremony during which prayers were offered for workers and the general public.
