Stop bawling, trade unionists

Monday, March 20 2017

THE EDITOR: Anytime I see trade unionists bawling like 40 Tarzans over the treatment meted out to them by politicians, I donít fell sorry for them.

They have not, and will never, learn their lesson ó that politicians in TT are only interested in power and the preservation of their respective party.

Trade unions are tools to be used and fooled. Voters are only important at election time.

All this talk about mutual respect for trade unions is just campaign gobar.

I have watched over the years how certain trade unionists align themselves with political parties, wearing red and yellow underwear, being offered positions on State boards and in the Senate, and they are blinded from hobnobbing with their so-called ďpolitical friends,Ē neglecting workersí interests, which should come first and foremost. And thatís a fact.

They even genuflect before their political masters, some of them unable to straighten up after.

They get too close, when they should be keeping their distance.

But will they ever learn? They even allow politicians to climb on their backs to attain power, only to feel the pain after. Now they bawling. Donít bawl, take it like a man.
