GTU Congress to focus on uniting Trade Union Movement – 7th Jan 2013
Unity within the Labour Movement, a national minimum wage and the reconstitution of the National Insurance Board will be the focus of the Guyana Trade Union Congress this year.
President of the GTUC, Norris Witter, said, that while the Union has not met just yet to formulate a program, they will have to take a more organized approach
Witter said, the GTUC would demand the depoliticizing of the board, which has being in existence since 1992.
For years the Labour Movement has not been speaking with one voice on some issues affecting the rights of workers. Now the umbrella trade union body is hoping to get the required cooperation from workers and their unions to confront some of the challenges facing workers.
