Speaking at a media conference outside the Ministry of Finance, Eric Williams Finance Building,
Independence Square, President General of the OWTU, Ancel Roget, called the Finance Minister, Colm
Imbert dishonest and condemns any action to stall an increase in workers’ wages.
Roget said the union is calling on the Finance Minister to show respect to the country and its
affairs in an effort to avoid the IMF.
Roget went on to add that all workers should be dealt with fairly and accused the previous government
of deceiving the public on the country’s economic affairs and by adhering to a 14% wage increase to
other trade unions.
