David Aplmac: Maybe in the UK, but in the West Indies, it’s just another extended public holiday/s…party for all. This is more threat and grand-standing than anything else. And in the tourist season. It’s only the national economy at stake, no big thing..

Syruppy Kennedy: I ain’t striking for hell. My bills have to pay. Is the BWU going to pay me when who I’m employed with refuse to pay. No so sorry I feel bad for the 97 but I ain’t striking or calling in sick.
