CBH workers protest for third day, demanding outstanding monies, while deFreitas says he is grieved by their treatment

Vector Control and sanitation workers at the Central Board of Health (CBH) downed tools for a third consecutive day on Wednesday, April 27, to demand monies owed to them in back pay and overtime.

Franz deFreitas, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s City South, says it makes him very emotional to see the actions workers have to take to get what is already theirs.

While Prime Minister Gaston Browne and members of his family are doing well, deFreitas notes, the poorer classes are being made to suffer.

Meanwhile, the CBH and other workers are being encouraged to join the Antigua and Barbuda Workers’ Union and the United Progressive Party this evening, April 28, for the “No Confidence Public Meeting” being held at Bakers Corner at 7 p.m.

DeFreitas is calling for the Nation to support this event and to stand up against the persistent tyranny of the Browne Administration.
