Large numbers for May Day Parade
WORKERS HAD THEIR say on Monday morning during the annual May Day Parade.
Thousands of placard-bearing workers from both the private sector and public sector marched from the Garrison Savannah, across Dalkeith Road and onto Culloden Road.
While there, they made a stop at the statue of labour relations stalwart and former general secretary of the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) Sir Frank Walcott where a moment of silence was observed.
Representatives of government, including Minister of Labour Esther Byer-Suckoo, BWU representatives Toni Moore and Sir Roy Trotman and president of the National Union of Public Workers Akanni McDowall, laid wreaths at the foot of the monument to show respect.
When the procession resumed, it was led by the youth, including the Brownies, Barbados Cadet Corp, Barbados Youth Service and the Boys Scouts, across Pine Road, Constitution Road, into Bridgetown then onto Bay Street. (TG)
