ATLU Protests, Claims Spencer Administration Failed to Address Antigua and Barbuda’s Economic Situation

 

Hundreds of workers, most of whom are members of the Antigua Trades and Labour Union, participated in the protest rally, which was addressed by top trade unionists.

The union accused the government of doing little to improve the country’s finances after being affected by the global economic crisis.

The union leaders contend that the government has failed to address the concerns of Antiguans, since there is large scale unemployment and high cost of living.

BBC Caribbean reported that the so-called “white march” followed a demonstration by the opposition Antigua Labour Party (ALP) outside the National Security Minister’s office.

ALP leader Lester Bird led his party’s picketing exercise, followed by senior members of the party.
