The National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has been forced to change the route for its protest march scheduled for Tuesday in support of retrenched National Conservation Commission workers.
Acting General Secretary Roslyn Smith told Barbados TODAY they have been informed that the previous route would have taken protestors too close to the Parliament building, in contravention of the law.
As a result, the demonstrators will now proceed from Queen’s Park, travel along Halls Road, Roebuck Street, turn right onto Pinfold Street, left onto Magazine Lane, right onto James Street, onto Tudor Street, Broad Street, turn left onto Prince Williams Street, turn right onto Swan Street, onto Roebuck Street, right onto Crumpton Street before returning to Queen’s Park.
Earlier today, a small team gathered at the union headquarters to organize placards for the demonstration.
