Comissiong slams trade union leaders
President of the Clement Payne Movement David Comissiong is telling rank and file members of the Barbados Workers Union (BWU) and the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) that the current leadership must be booted out because of their political affiliations.
He is accusing some BWU and NUPW executive members of putting those loyalties before the interests of workers.
In a press statement on the matter, Comissiong accused the trade unionists of playing “mock sport” with the lives of dismissed public servants, including those who’ve been retrenched at the National Conservation Commission.
And he is urging members of the two trade unions to act before too much more damage is done by those, whom he describes, as being partisan and politically compromised.
