Workers in Barbados called out to March tomorrow Featured

All workers of Barbados are invited to participate in the national demonstration which citizens of Barbados and workers of Barbados will be staging on Monday, July 24, 2017.

The demonstration is being organised to insist on the rights of citizens to have meaningful social dialogue with our Government regarding the onerous tax impositions which have been recently inflicted on the workers of this country, as well as the failure of the Government to treat with the wages and salaries adjustments for Public Servants whose purchasing power has been seriously eroded over the last nine years.

The workers’ unions are calling on the Government of Barbados to meet urgently under the leadership of the Prime Minister to define means by which the severe suffering may be reduced.

The employers of Barbados have had discussions with the trade unions and in the Private Sector many of them will be releasing their staff with pay to participate in the national demonstration.

Public Sector workers are especially encouraged to take part in the whole of the exercise or in as much of it as they may be able to do.
