Rift widens between BWU and Coalition of Trade Unions & Staff Associations? DePeiza again for ILO gathering over outgoing Sir Leroy Trotman

The 103rd Session of the International Labour Conference opens in Geneva, Switerzland, on Wednesday, 28 May, 2014. The conference which will be held at the Palais des Nations and at the ILO headquarters ends on Thursday, 12 June, 2014.

The theme of the Conference is ‘Building a future with Decent Work.’

The International Labour Conference which is the ILO’s highest decision making body, brings together tripartite delegations from the organization’s 185 member states.

Through the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Human Resource Development, the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) has been invited to nominate labour’s representative on the Barbados delegation to travel to the Conference.

The Congress has nominated its General Secretary, Dennis de Peiza, as labour's representative on the Barbados Delegation.

Topics on the agenda for discussion at this year’s Conference include, The Force Labour Convention, 1930 (No.29), and Facilitating transition from the informal to the formal economy.

{EDITOR’s NOTE: Last year about this same period a deep divide in CTUSAB opened when the Barbados Workers Union seceded from the Umbrella body when DePeiza was chosen over BWU General Secretary Sir Leroy Trotman, some wondered if it was payback for Trotman accepting a Knighthood from the BLP’s Owen Arthur regime}
