BWU lawyers on watch

Social Share

The?Barbados Workers’ Union is so outraged at the manner in which a customs guard was treated at Grantley Adams International Airport recently that it has directed its attorneys to pursue the matter.
General secretary Sir Roy Trotman has condemned the June 28 arrest of Owen Moseley at the airport after a confrontation with police over a traveller’s luggage.
“The Barbados Workers’ Union has agreed what we are going to do. What we have already started to do is to engage our well-known attorneys in an effort to ask them to pursue this matter in the interest of the worker concerned, Mr Moseley, but equally importantly to establish that we will have a full basis for understanding what could be going wrong in an area where uniformed officers, all of them sworn to protecting a strategic area, are finding themselves ending up as objects of ridicule and disrespect,” he said.
Sir Roy’s comments follow a meeting the union held on Thursday night with officials of the customs guard division of the BWU. (MK)
