Philip Willoughby Supports Stevedores

Philip Willoughby

As the stevedores continued their strike, making a presence today was Philip Willoughby. Willoughby is the U.D.P.’s Standard Bearer for Port Loyola and he says he went there to gather facts and relay those facts to his colleagues in cabinet who can address the ongoing matter. Willoughby says both sides need to sit down and find a clear path forward.

“I’ve communicated with my colleagues as you know today cabinet is meeting in Belmopan and I notified my colleagues about what is a developing and fluid situation as you can see right  now. I am hoping that all the respective parties can get together and have these talks so we can understand where we are and chart for the benefit for all those involved here today. No one has to be out there standing in sun hot. The country is losing finances. The workers are apparently losing. The port is losing. So no one is winning at this point and it is hurting everyone.”
