Public and private sector join forces
Public and private sector workers will be joining together on Monday at 10 a.m for a march in protest of the hike in the National Social Responsibility Levy.
This was announced a short time ago in a joint press conference at the headquarters of the Barbados Secondary Teachers Union.
General Secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union Toni Moore, flanked by president of the Barbados Private Sector Association, Charles Herbert, stated that both the public and private sector representative bodies “are agreed that on Monday July 24th 2017, we will stage a joint march to allow the wider public to demonstrate their support.”
The march will start at Queen’s Park.
BPSA head Herbert stated that the entity was “asking all private sector companies to close their businesses to allow their employees – on full pay, to attend the march.”
Moore stressed that operations at the ports of entry, hotels and Queen Elizabeth Hospital would not be disrupted by the action.
