MSJ Claims It’s Walking The Talk On Educating Workers And Striving For Unity

The Movement for Social Justice is suggesting the Labour Movement must educate to raise workers’ consciousness, organize workers to unite and agitate for “those who labour to hold the reins of power”.

MSJ says it is walking the talk in this area and one of the ways of doing so is through its Tuesday Talk discussions which seek to inform and educate.

It claims the medium is a space for labour and progressive social movements and have already provided many hundreds of workers who are not in a trade union with vital information about their rights adding it intends to reach thousands more in the coming weeks.

MSJ says  ahead of tomorrow’s observance of Labour Day it salutes the working class of Trinidad and Tobago and the Labour Movement on this the 87th Anniversary of the June 19th, 1937 General Strike and Anti-Colonial Revolt.

It explains June 19th – or Labour Day – is much more than a public holiday adding it is a day on which the workers of Trinidad and Tobago can celebrate the gains that were achieved as a result of the struggle and sacrifices made by the workers in 1937.
