‘YES’ TO BABIES

‘THE National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) is behind Minister of Education Ronald Jones’ call for people to make more babies, in principle.
Speaking after a service to launch Public Workers’ Week at St Luke’s Anglican Church in Brighton, St George yesterday, outgoing general secretary Dennis Clarke said it was something the NUPW and the labour movement across the Caribbean had been agitating for over time.
“Mr Jones is correct in asking that there be more babies born, but I’m not going to say to someone if they can’t afford it to go and have a baby,” he said.
Noting that he and the Minister of Education had never discussed the issue, Clarke said the unions were in agreement from the perspective of pensions.
