    I am calling on the Rev. Charles Morris, if he attends the meeting today, to rise on a point of order and ask Ms Redman to recuse herself of the leadership position for the duration of the meeting , in light of the article appearing in today’s edition of Barbados Today, headlined ”Redman denies nepotism drove recent BSTU action” ‘. Yes, Rev. Charles, you taught me Caribbean History at Combermere School and you were well versed on the Trade Union
    Movement started by the likes of Adams, Marryshaw, Bird, Springer, Manley, Bustamante etc. etc. . For God’s Sake, don’t let the BSTU become the laughing stock of the Caribbean.
