Union leaders from countries across the Caribbean have come together to develop a strategy for building transport workers’ power in the region.
Over 20 activists from nine countries met in Antigua. They agreed to focus on building power through working to organize transport workers in tourism, maritime infrastructure, and the oil and gas industry
The group also reaffirmed their commitment to providing close solidarity for each other in the region, as well as internationally with other ITF unions.
David Massiah, chair of the ITF tourism section, led the event: “Just the fact that so many people gathered here, from so many unions and countries, proves how committed we are to working closely together to build power for our members.
