Workers parade on streets
Thousands of workers led by Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer-Suckooo and representatives of the various unions took to the streets this morning in a parade to celebrate them.
The march moved off from the Garrison Savannah around 9:20 a.m. on a route culminating at the statue of longstanding General Secretary the late Sir Frank Walcott, just outside of the building in Culloden Road, which bears his name.
Workers from various Government departments and some private entities donned bright T-shirts and marched along the route, creating a rainbow of colour along the streets.
After being led in prayer by Dean Dr Frank Marshall, representatives from different organisations laid wreaths and carnations.
They later proceeded to Browne’s Beach, where celebrations will continue into the late evening. (YB)
