THERE NEEDS TO be further inclusion of people with disabilities into the workforce.

The call has come from president of the Barbados National Organisation of the Disabled (BARNOD) Colbert Ashby who spoke to the media yesterday during a Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) press conference.
