On the heels of what has been described as a successful public meeting on Thursday night, April 28, the Antigua and Barbuda Workers’ Union (ABWU) is looking ahead to its grand Labour Day March come Monday, May 2.
This year, the Union will be staging a march, from its headquarters on lower Newgate Street to the West Bus Station area, under the theme “Workers have NO Confidence in this Government! We deserve better!”
This event, similar to Thursday night’s rally, will be held in collaboration with the United Progressive Party (UPP).
Wehner is inviting workers to come out in their numbers and join the rally in light of the slew of issues impacting them at this time. He also invites students to be part of the march.
Meanwhile, Chester Hughes, the Deputy General-Secretary of the Union, is calling on workers across the Nation to join the march and to bring along their placards protesting the Government’s failure to treat them with fairness and dignity.
In the meantime, Chairman of the UPP D. Gisele Isaac is also inviting residents to join the march, especially over the persistent water shortage – which the ALP promised to fix before it was elected to office, but has done little to correct during its eight years, even with more Reverse Osmosis plants.
