TRIBUTE TO NELSON MANDELA FROM CONGRESS OF TRADE UNIONS & STAFF ASSOC’S. OF BARBADOS
The passing of Nelson Mandela means that the world has now lost an icon, legend, statesman and patriot. He was revered the world over. He is renowned for having virtually single handily led a global reformation, which basically denounced the alienation and exclusion of a race of people, based on their pigmentation.
History will recall Nelson Mandela as one of the greatest human beings to have graced the world stage; and most fittingly as a leader who led by example.
The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) joins with the global labour movement in recognizing the contribution of Nelson Mandela in guiding its work and actions on behalf of all working class people; through the embrace of the philosophies, high ideals and principles which he enunciated and promoted.
The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados joins the world in grieving the loss of this distinguished freedom fighter and humanitarian, and the most inspiring leader of the 20th century.
CTUSAB believes that no better tribute could be paid to Mandela’s memory, than by championing his philosophy, which demands that ‘we make the world a better place, a just and peaceful world.’
