CTUSAB in favour of Cuba decision
THE CONGRESS OF Trade Unions and Staff Associations pf Barbados (CTUSAB) has welcomed the announcement by American President Barack Obama about the establishment of the diplomatic ties with Cuba after a 50-year lapse.
President Cedric Murrell said the Congress was also looking forward to the lifting of the “draconian” embargo against the Cuban people.
Speaking at a Press conference this afternoon to send Christmas and New Year greetings to Barbadians, Murrell said CTUSAB has a relationship with some of the trade unions in Cuba and that three local delegates had visited the Spanish territory.
He also said one of the trade union leaders from Cuba was recently in Barbados. (YB)
