By Aaron Humes: Though not entirely unexpected, the Christian Workers’ Union (CWU) got much-needed support from its brother trade unions, the Belize National Teachers’ Union (BNTU) and Public Service Union (PSU), among others.

President of the BNTU, Senator Elena Smith said it was about solidarity: “As Unions, we always support our sisters and our brothers. We do not interfere in the work of our fellow Union brothers and sisters. But when requested, when asked, and when it comes to these kinds of situations, we do show solidarity. So, our purpose for being here today, if you notice, BNTU is here, PSU is here, I am not sure who else is here, we are here to show solidarity with CWU, because we understand what it is that they are going through. We understand their plight. And, as workers as well, we are here to provide that support as best as we can.”

But, she was asked, where is the line drawn when it comes to the external impacts of this standoff on the private sector and those employees?

Smith responded that questions of legality aside, the membership decides that: “In terms of, as a union, when or where step back comes from our membership. So, as we get information from the CWU, it will go to our membership and from there we make those decisions.”
