Sad day for union talks
President of the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) Cedric Murrell has said it is “regrettable” how the dispute between his organisation and the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) has been handled.
Speaking at a press briefing yesterday afternoon at CTUSAB?headquarters in Jessamy Avenue, Bayland, St Michael, Murrell assured Barbadians that this country was capably represented last month by the experienced team of Dennis DePeiza and Walter Maloney at the 102nd annual ILO session in Geneva, Switzerland.
Murrell said that CTUSAB?had proven itself in this country and was more than capable of carving its niche in the international area.
“It is clear that the congress formed in 1995 and with the experienced gained over time led by Sir Roy Trotman has carved its name on history’s page, certainly in Barbados. The question must be, isn’t the congress to carve its name on history’s page outside of Barbados?
“I?leave that question with you, because for me, the answer to that does not lie with the exclusion of anyone, it lies in the inclusion of all,” he said.
