‘No change’ for union meeting
WORD THAT thousands of dollars are supposed to be spent for the top brass of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) to attend the Caribbean Public Services Association Conference in Anguilla this month has drawn criticism from one local talk show host.
Speaking on a Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation radio call-in programme, host Maureen Holder suggested the NUPW could be engaging in double standards, and also charged the union was about to spend large sums of money for the conference at the same time it was severely critical of government’s spending.
But defending the union’s position, president Akanni McDowall told the DAILY NATION the meeting was held once a year and was attended by all presidents of public service unions from across the Caribbean. (GC)
