Fyzabad in the spotlight today as labour unions march

Monday, June 19 2017

A united labour movement comprising the Joint Trade Union Movement (JTUM), the National Trade Union Centre (NATUC) and the Federation of Independent Trade Unions and NGOs (FITUN) are expected to converge at Charlie King Junction, Fyzabad as the movement celebrates its 80th anniversary today. The Public Services Associationís president Watson Duke has confirmed that they will also be taking part.

And in a departure from previous years, a number of changes have been made as the traditional walk from Avocat Junction is expected to begin after addresses by representatives from individual unions. Each address is expected to be three-minutes long.

The unions would then lead their members to Charlie King Junction where addresses will be made by the leadership of JTUM, NATUC, FITUN and would include the feature address by JTUM president Ancel Roget.

Several activities are expected to precede the march including the Butler Classics 20K walk which starts at the OWTU Paramount Building, 99A Circular Road, San Fernando headquarters at 5 a.m.

At 5.30 a.m., the Butler Classics 20K run also starts at the same venue. Also at 5.30 a.m., the Butler Classics 5K Juniorís Race starts at Jovanís Grocery, Harris Village, South Oropouche.

There will also be a wreath laying ceremony at Tubal Uriah Butlerís grave site at Apex Cemetery, Fyzabad at 8am.

However, the All Trinidad General Workers Trade Union will host its own celebrations at Rienzi Complex, Couva beginning with a march from the Esperanza Recreation Ground at 10a.m. The union is a member of NATUC.

An address by president Nirvan Maharaj is expected to take place at noon followed by a cultural show.
