CTUSAB: labour fighting for survival

April 29th, 2022

With days to go before the island commemorates Labour Day, the umbrella body for trade unions in Barbados suggests there’s no longer the revolutionary zeal, as the labour movement is today fighting for survival.

President of the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) Edwin O’Neal says every social benefit the population enjoys today, all began with the agitation of workers fighting for a piece of the pie.

He believes succeeding generations have grown comfortable with what they have inherited.

Mr. O’Neal was a guest on CBC TV8s Mornin’ Barbados.

General Secretary, Dennis de Peiza says the social partnership remains relevant as it was since its inception.

However, he says problems arise with how it works.

CTUSAB will mark Labour Day with a rally and concert in Golden Square Freedom Park in Bridgetown on Monday.
