Toni Moore takes over


Share post:

THERE WAS A CHANGING of the guard at the Barbados Workers’ Union today, as Toni Moore formally took over as general secretary, replacing veteran trade unionist Sir Roy Trotman.

Moore, the first woman to hold the post, received a rousing welcome at the 73rd Annual Delegates Conference of the union.

She told delegates to flex their muscles and get ready to defend their rights. She said in some instances where rights and benefits were being repealed, many workers were not fighting back but retreating.

Before handing over the symbols of the office of general secretary, Sir Roy said there came a time when old brains and old holders of ideas had to step aside and let the organisation move on with younger people.

He urged delegates to help Moore keep the symbols – a flag and a seal of office – alive and strong. (Trevor Yearwood)
