Be on your guard!
In the wake of Monday’s massive joint public and private sector march, the island’s trade unions have been warned to be cautious about whom they build alliances with.
This warning comes from president of the Clement Payne Movement, David Comissiong, who said: “I would just like to say to the trade unions that they have to be conscious of this. It is not everybody who smiles with them, not everybody who marches with them, who really is committed to them and committed to the fundamental interest of the workers.”
He made the comments yesterday when asked to give his views on Monday’s march, led by the island’s four major trade unions and the Barbados Private Sector Association, to protest Government’s decision to increase the National Social Responsibility Levy (NSRL) and which saw at least 21 000 Barbadians take to the streets.
