The streets of Port-of-Spain are full of hundreds of public sector workers marching through Port-of-Spain in protest of the government's offer of a 2% salary increase over an eight-year period. The Joint Trade Union Movement and members of other union bodies gathered at 10 a.m. at Memorial Park.
As they waited, public sector workers from various groups began chanting to ready themselves for the march.
There were shouts of "Rowley and Imbert out", "Get down from there Rowley" and "2% nothing!"
After a brief conversation between union leaders Michael Annisette and Ancel Roget, and senior Trinidad and Tobago Police Officers, the march began. Their first stop is the Chief Personnel's Office and it's expected they will proceed to the Ministry of Finance After.
The unions formally rejected CPO Daryl Dindial's offer of 2% yesterday.
