No violence!


Share post:

Barbados’ biggest union has told its members not to resort to violence because of Government’s tough new economic measures which will see 3 000 public service workers losing jobs between next January and March.
Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) general secretary Sir Roy Trotman, addressing a Christmas luncheon for 250 retired union members yesterday, urged people not to be “consumed with anger” at those they viewed as responsible for the job cuts.
He said Barbadians should not resort to “either physical or verbal” violence or to assign blame for this state of affairs.
At the same time, he promised that the union, as it did during the economic troubles of 20 years ago, would move to provide “part of the solution”.
