Stevedores say DFC has not paid dues to CWU for years

The reason for the postponement of the congress is due to the current financial situation of the union.  The forthcoming process, according to Pitter, should exclude the membership of the Development Finance Corporation, which he says has not paid dues, nor has it been an active member of the Christian Workers Union for several years. 


Dion Pitter, Member, Christian Workers Union

“DFC noh have one cents ina this because dehn noh pay for four years. You know weh dah the question; you know why Miss Sherry Berry tell we why dehn noh pay, because yon oh have no financial report, because yon oh have no monthly meeting; yon oh have this. The same thing weh we di bawl for, but it okay for she and noh say nothing. But ih okay fi we, but we wrong. Something must wrong with dehn well-intelligent people bredda. Something is wrong.”


Stevedore, Member, Christian Workers Union

“We have this press release yah. This press release yah come from the national trade union congress and if unu could show this pan unu news tonight. dehn people di day the twenty-sixth we have to honor it and all these entities at this meeting this Friday di tell we let’s go noh honor this; let’s go pass this and make dehn decertified we and then we noh have no union fi protect poor people. This dah noh bout no Cherry Berry and no Basil and dehn. Me noh come protect unu; me come protect di lee man weh work up ina dehn entities weh make the employer noh chance dehn. That dah weh me di protect.”
