Share post:

?The head of the Barbados Workers’ Union, Sir Roy Trotman, is threatening to call out his troops for what he describes as an act of unfair dismissal, by an “Egyptian Jew” of 20 jewellery store employees.

Sir Roy made his comments in a fiery address to those at the annual May Day rally at Browne’s Beach yesterday afternoon.
