In C.W.U. Elections, It’s Moses Vs “Mose”

Moses Sulph

The Christian Workers’ Union holds its annual general meeting on Saturday at the Bishop Sylvestre Memorial Center. It will be highlighted by elections for a new executive after the departure of President Dale Trujeque last year. While the names of the candidates for president – Moses Sulph, Evan “Mose” Hyde and Wilmore Staine – are familiar, only Staine has significant ties to unionism.  Sulph is a former president of Citizens Organized for Liberty through Action (COLA) and Hyde has been a booster of the Belize National Teachers’ Union. Sulph visited News Five today to present his platform for change, which he says includes getting a fair deal for union members on their collective bargaining agreements.


Moses Sulph, Candidate, CWU Presidency

“My motto in this is that the CWU members need to see progress. They have not seen progress over the past years—not because of lapse of certain things, but I think where they haven’t moved forward in a way whereby they are involved in the national discourse and whereby they are seen as a unit that is also concerned about the national discourse of things.  However, what I bring to this union is that I am going to bring progress to the members. I bring strong leadership and dedicated leadership to those who I’ve always served; it is nothing new for me. I believe that at this point, many of the union members do feel disenfranchised and they feel as if people who have run for this position previously before has only done it and haven’t really made significant change for them—not saying that this is an indication on any of those persons that they never tried the best management skills they can. However, I know what I bring to the table and that is I am going to bring progress to the union members. Some of those progress involve whereby we will definitely have to review many of the CBAs that are there or previous CBAs because it is not in line with cost of living or inflation or some of the practices that should be in the workplace when it comes to the benefit of workers and union members.”
