Share post:

THE CONGRESS OF Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) is now a member of the Caribbean Congress of Labour (CCL).

However, general secretary Dennis de Peiza said this achievement was accomplished over the objections of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU). 

During the congress’ recent Labour Day message, he spoke of the achievement.

“Since 2005, CTUSAB’s application to the CCL was on hold due to an objection from the BWU. Today, the congress can report that, at the administrative and general council meeting of the CCL held in Barbados on April 18 and 19, its application for membership of the CCL was approved,” he said. (BA)
