P.S.U. President Says “We Felt a Bit Disrespected”

Gerald Henry

In August, P.S.U. President Gerald Henry completed the first three weeks of his countrywide familiarization tour. Henry met with public services across the country, in government departments in every district. When he arrived at the Belize City branch of the Belize Tax Service Department the doors were closed and Henry was not welcomed. Henry says that he and his team were refused entry into the building. We asked Henry why.

“I don’t know why Belize City was different. I can’t speak to that.”

“No reason was given?”

“No. It is just that we won’t allow to go in.”

“Do you believe that there is anything untoward in that decision to not allow the PSU president to not speak to its members?”

“Like I said, I don’t know what precipitated that from the director. We just moved on because we other places to go and there are other ways how we can get to our members so we just moved forward with it. The visits at the departments were just an introductory visit per say. It was pretty much like a meet and greet. The information that was shared was at the actual meeting. So it didn’t really affect us. It just that we felt a bit disrespected especially since we had just had a meeting with the director at the time and she said she was very supportive of the union. So we found it a bit strange that she would not allow us to go in to any of her branches.”
