Kamla: Labour will always be part of PP Govt
The labour movement will always be part of the People’s Partnership. This was the view expressed by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar through her address on Labour Day. “This means that as we govern, the greater good must never be sacrificed for political expediency or partisanship,” she said. “Even in the midst of challenges, Labour is and will always be a partner to this Government.”
She also said her government took pride in having Errol McLoud as Labour Minister as this demonstrated their pro-labour government stance. Persad-Bissessar added that yesterday was a special Labour Day as it came “at a time when there is much interest in the relationship with our pro-labour government, one which for the first time in political history has a stalwart of workers, a former president general of the OWTU, the Honourable Errol McLeod as the nation’s Labour Minister.”
Persad-Bissessar also said she was proud of the Government’s efforts in effectively managing labour issues over the last two years. She took the opportunity to give workers the assurance that their needs would be taken care of. “Your Government today reaffirms its pledge to protect the rights, enhance the benefits and improve the comfort of workers,” the PM said, “We must, however, govern fairly and responsibly in the interest of the entire nation.”
