THE?TRADE?UNIONS?should be left out of the Anti-Corruption Bill, says Dennis DePeiza.
The general secretary of the Congress of Trade Unions and?Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) thinks there are implications for volunteerism if the tentacles of the Anti-Corruption Bill that Government plans to introduce to Parliament sometime this year are applied to the leadership of trade unions.
DePeiza expressed this concern yesterday when giving the feature address at the annual general meeting of the Barbados Secondary Teachers Union (BSTU)at Queen’s College.
“This bill has serious implications because it speaks to those who serve on statutory boards. You can imagine what happens to CTUSAB when it has its members serving on the boards of the 22 secondary schools,” he said.
