Greater Respect Of Trade Unions Needed In T&T, Says CWU General Secretary.

by | Dec 31, 2018 | 1 comment

With thousands of workers losing their jobs in 2018, this year was a difficult one for the labour movement and Secretary General of the Communications Workers Union Clyde Elder, believes the Government will pay for this at the polls.

Speaking with News Power Now, he said that there is a blatant lack of respect shown to Labour in this country.

He added that he hopes 2019 brings a change in the way Government treats Trade Union and it members.

While he believes that the present administration will pay for their actions at the polls, Mr Elder also noted that the country needs a new political entity to emerge.

    You hear the same story again and again, but nobody has a solution in T&T. Of course this also applies to the unions themselves. Therefore I will reveal two success stories for T&T. First let citizen participate in political decision making like in Switzerland. Second make trade unions responsible for economical success. This can be done quite easy. Make it compulsory for all employer to be a member of the employers association und make it compulsory for all employees to be member of a trade union. Of course here is a political action required. If T&T has a compulsory union membership for employees like Damark, both social [partner will work hand in hand for the benefit of the industry and no interference of politics is required anymore.
