Ready to march
All systems are go for a planned protest by the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) next Tuesday, January 13.
Last night, the executive council of the NUPW held a special meeting and the majority of its members said “yes” to the demonstration which coincides with the resumption of Parliament.
The action is in support of the close to 200 people who were sent home from the National Conservation Commission (NCC) at the end of April last year.
Acting NUPW General Secretary Roslyn Smith told Barbados TODAY the group will assemble in Queen’s Park and then move on to St Michael’s Row, Wharf Road, Hincks Street, Broad Street and Prince William Henry Street.
