Hundreds of jubilant workers yesterday paid tribute to National Hero and former trade union stalwart Sir Frank Walcott during the annual May Day Parade. 
Participants from a wide cross-section of the workforce paused for a moment at the statue of Sir Frank at the National Insurance Scheme buildings on Culloden Road, St Michael, for a short ceremony during which prayers were offered for workers and the general public.
