Striking Transport Board drivers listen attentively to shop steward, Randy Sobers, (in striped shirt) minutes before they made their way to the Barbados Workers Union headquarters for a meeting with senior members of the union.

From as early as 7 a.m. today pedestrians and motorists travelling on the busy Roebuck Street had sensed that something was amiss with the presence of armed members of the Royal Barbados Police Force focusing their attention on the movement of vehicles exiting and entering Weymouth Depot.
