THE NATIONAL UNION of Public Workers (NUPW) will be getting a new president after a ding dong battle, with 18 members vying for six posts in upcoming elections.

The April 1 poll will usher in the first new president in ten years with long-standing president Walter Maloney opting out of the running.

Instead, the leader will be chosen from Margo Bannister, a clerical officer at the Barbados Community College; Danny Gill, director of planning and research with the Ministry of Health; Ronnie Greaves-Thorpe, an accountant with the Barbados Prison Service, and Akanni McDowell, an environmental health officer.

The NUPW, the largest bargaining body representative of public servants, with 10 000 members, will also employ the use of technology for the first time with voting machines tabulating the final results for the 2015-2017 term.  (LK)
