B.N.T.U. Strike Back On? Union Planning and Waiting

There are rumblings on the streets that the B.N.T.U. is ready to resume their strike, and the hard, militant talk at today’s launch certainly stirred up old emotions and feelings.  But the union is nothing if not practical and deliberate, and President Elena Smith has learned well from predecessor Luke Palacio about giving nothing away concerning their plans.  All she would tell reporters this evening that the Union has plans to meet this coming weekend and that everyone, especially the Government, should beware.

Elena Smith, National President, B.N.T.U.

“We have a meeting on Saturday, because we have our final elections on Thursday for our Belize Branch and then we have our first meeting of our new elected officers and then from there we have to present to them what we have on the table, and then we see where we go from there. So as I said in my address, anything is possible.  You know sometimes you’re walking and suddenly you feel an ant biting you? You don’t know where it came from, you just feel it? I’ll leave it at that.”
