NUPW hits back at Arthur


Share post:

THE AGENDA OF the 10 000-strong National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) will not be set by the Opposition, Government or any other entity, says president Walter Maloney.
In response to former Prime Minister Owen Arthur’s charge yesterday that his party was not going to stay silent while the labour movement “acquiesces in the perpetration of massive injustice on the people of this country” in relation to Government’s plan to send home 3 000 public servants within the next three months, Maloney said some people believed they could tell the NUPW what to do.
“I’ve realized that some people believe that they can set NUPW’s agenda. I want people to understand it is not possible.
“We have a procedure, there’s a process that we go through. This organization has been in existence for 70 years, and (general secretary) Dennis Clarke and Walter Maloney do not determine what direction we go in these matters,” he told the MIDWEEK NATION.
