GTUC calls for a gov’t that watches out for workers and vulnerable in society (26th May 2022) – The 56th anniversary of Guyana’s independence finds a very divided nation- a society dangerously drifting from its motto, “One People One Nation One Destiny.” Hopelessness, despair and fear are everywhere.

No worker should be unduly exposed knowingly to hazardous threats and potential life-threatening circumstances without adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). It is callous and insensitive for this government, or anyone, to represent the healthcare workers’ legitimate […]
