BWU: Trust gap widening

June 11, 2024

The Barbados Workers Union has told a high level international labour conference, the trust gap between states and citizens along with employers and employees is widening worldwide.

BWU General Secretary Toni Moore says the experience of COVID-19 also exposed further social and economic inequalities within and between countries.

Ms. Moore suggests a need for course correction.

She was addressing the ongoing plenary debates at the 112th International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

Ms. Moore says the solidarity seen during COVID-19 is no more, as she notes workers on the front line feel more isolated and forgotten.
