Inniss: Think again, unions
YOU DON’T SCARE ME!
That was made clear yesterday by Minister of Industry Donville Inniss in response to sharp criticism from general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union, Toni Moore, on May Day during official labour celebrations.
While addressing guests, including Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, attending joint labour/Government activities at Browne’s Beach, St Michael, Moore said: “When a minister of Government can declare his aversion and refusal to meet with a union body, if such a demand was made for an audience with him, we can’t feel comfort in the fact that a certain kleptocracy is now taking over our democracy.
“I want to issue a newsflash to all those members of Government and the Opposition who share that kind of philosophy, and that kind of thinking. A change is gonna come in your thinking, or you better find yourself in some other vocation.” (RRM)
