INDUSTRIAL UNREST VISIBLE IN REGIONS

By  EWALT AINSWORTH                                                     “

Reports out of Georgetown on Monday suggest that the lines outside of the US embassy were longer than the picket lines outside the Office of the President off Vlissingen Road.  The Regions were brisk and stealthy as workers came out to protest the measly five per cent increase the jagabats are offering.

Low pay and sometimes no pay by edict of the President, seems to be upsetting all categories of workers in Guyana.  El-Paresidente Bharrat Jagdeo pays himself, cabinet, advisors and  other batahaas in excess of a thousand times more than what is offered to rank and file workers.

The industrial issues that emerge stink of a bloated and inflated administration that has an entrenched policy of hurt and rescue.  The PPP tempts their workers to misbehave and protest and brings out its arsenal of law enforcement to beat up and shoot up.  Apparently Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee has had enough of the awkward and brutish mentality and has been calling in sick from his citadel.

The TELECOMS union mobilized its workers Sunday nite for the wake at Victoria for one of its trophy employees, Mr. Oswald Blackett who died in his sleep ten days ago.  APNU joined the funeral cortege on Monday and hopefully as the weak this week will progressively see protests in more enclaves, offices, field and factories.

GPSU IS SLOW TO REACT.  One of the first things the PPP did 32 years ago was to degrade the leadership.  Subscriptions were also mandatory and there PPP chop off the head of the snake.

This bullying, this form of intimidation has left all the unions toothless and breathless not knowing how to stand up for the workers.

Meanwhile the police in GT have arrested a duo for stealing equipment from the US embassy warehouse at the airport.  Apparently over the years there is an ongoing visa racket and the bold face jagabats seem to be corralling the equipment so that they can control the flow of visas.  ASOMELYKAM.
